New contributions to the Eulophidae fauna from Morocco (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) with comparison in the North African regionAcronym: MCNB-Kissayi-Benhalima-Benhoussa-2019
We present an update of the Moroccan Eulophidae following samples collected in the Maâmora forest between 2012 and 2014, and completed with a thorough bibliographic study. We report seven genera for the first time in Morocco: Allocerastichus Masi, 1924; Euderomphale Girault, 1916; Eulophus Geoffroy, 1762; Euplectrus Westwood, 1832; Microlycus Thomson, 1878; Tamarixia Masi, 1924 and Trjapitzinichus Kostjukov & Kosheleva, 2006 and six species: Baryscapus impeditus (Nees, 1864); Ceranisus menes (Walker, 1839); Elachertus lateralis (Spinola, 1808); Elasmus atratus Howard, 1897; Microlycus biroi (Erdös, 1951) and Trjapitzinichus politus (Graham, 1991). A possible new species (Baryscapus n. sp.) and two unidentified species (Allocerastichus sp. and Euderomphale sp.) are included in the list of Moroccan Eulophidae.
Samples were collected at three stations in the Maâmora forest: Taïcha (Station 1), Aïn Johra (Station 2), and Aïn Assou Kceïbia (Station 3)
Identifications are based on Narendran (2011); Triapitsyn and Headrick (1995); Protasov et al. (2007a, 2007b); Bouček (1959, 1977, 1988); Erdös (1954); Harris (1979); Delucchi and Remaudière (1966); Bouček and Askew (1968a); Graham (1987, 1991); Doğanlar et al. 2011; LaSalle (1994).
The work of the determinations of this family was preceded by a thorough bibliographical study.
