Revision of the northern South American tiphiid genus Merithynnus Kimsey, 1991 (Hymenoptera: Tiphiidae: Thynninae)



Revision of the northern South American tiphiid genus Merithynnus Kimsey, 1991 (Hymenoptera: Tiphiidae: Thynninae)



Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington 107(3): 576-595



The South American genus Merithynnus is revised. Five new species from Colombia, M. bilobatus, M. intermedius, M. montanus, M. nasalis and M. paradoxus, are described. Of these species only paradoxus and intermedius are known from both sexes. The remaining species are based on males. Seven previously described species, three from Venezuela (osorioi, pecki, and turbulentus) and four from Colombia (acuminatus, bogotanus, desertus, and mimulus) are redescribed, and a distribution map and key to the species are provided. Merithynnus desertus is known only from the female and acuminatus, bogotanus, mimulus, and turbulentus are known only from males.
