Mymarid? - Trichopria

Mymarid? - Trichopria
Dixie Plantation, Charleston County, South Carolina, USA
September 16, 2007
Size: 1mm
At this scale it's hard to confirm even families! Note the absence of venation on the feathered wings. Also note the hind wing near the abdomen reduced to a filament. Very cool and mysterious creatures

Apparent Doliopria

With the utmost respect to Proctos who clearly knows their way around Diapriidae, this specimen appears to me to be Doliopria F. I count 11 antennal segments.

Segments A10 and A11 are enlarged and seem to have the connection between them high (not through the middle of the antennae.) As Matt has pointed out on BugGuide, Doliopria is quite close to Basalys. If you like you can read more about the fascinating details on his on-line key (adapted Masner&Garcia 2002)



Moved from Mymaridae.
