Phenology Of Zagryphus Zulaya Gauld (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Tryphoninae) In A Montane Forest In Guatemala And A New Country Record For Z. Vegai Gauld, Jack C. Schuster, Gabriella Steele Jan 2015

Phenology Of Zagryphus Zulaya Gauld (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Tryphoninae) In A Montane Forest In Guatemala And A New Country Record For Z. Vegai Gauld, Jack C. Schuster, Gabriella Steele

Insecta Mundi

Ichneumonidae are incredibly diverse, yet there have been few Guatemalan ichneumonid studies. We studied the phenology of 215 specimens of Zagryphus zulaya Gauld (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Tryphoninae), most captured in a light trap and two Malaise traps in a montane (1850m) forest from 2002 to 2014. One of the Malaise traps caught over 95% of the specimens. The results suggest that Z. zulaya is most abundant in May, June, July, and August, the rainy season. Zagryphus vegai Gauld is newly recorded from Guatemala; it was previously known only from Costa Rica. It was found at an altitude of 1850m, though its …

Pandirodesmus rutherfordi, n. sp., represented by 18 individuals including eight adult males, occurs in secondary forests near Charlotteville and Speyside, Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago. Along with the type and second species, P. disparipes Silvestri, from Guyana and known only from females, the segmental legs of P. rutherfordi alternate between long (anterior pairs) and short (posterior ones), spiracular openings are on straw-like tubules, and ozopores are located on paramedian metatergal spines. These features appear to be adaptations for biotopes of loose sand, detritus, or frass, and 17 specimens, including the six juveniles, exhibit coatings of “sand grains” that are loosely …
