Revision of the Nearctic GLYPHICNEMIS Foerster (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae, Gelinae)
By John Luhman
Center for Systematic Entomology, Gainesville, Florida (Insecta Mundi), 1986
The Nearctic genus GLYPHICNEMIS Foerster is revised with a key to the species.

FULL TEXT (11 pages)

GLYPHICNEMIS Foerster is a small Holarctic genus in the subtribe Endaseina of the Gelini. Nearctic species were placed in PHYGADEUON Gravenhorst until Townes (1944) placed them in the subgenus GLYPHICNEMIS within ENDASYS Foerster. However, earlier Cushman (1925) had transferred PHYGADEUON CRASSIPES Provancher, a junior synonym of G. MANDIBULARIS (Cresson), to GLYPHICNEMIS, and the Palearctic species, at first placed in PHYGADEUON, were included by Habermehl (1916) in GLYPHICNEMIS, reduced to a subgenus within STYLOCRYPTUS Thomson (1873).
