A new genus of ichneumonid flies of the subfamily Collyriinae (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae) from Syria and Israel

V.S. Kuslitzky & D.R. Kasparyan

Abstract. In the subfamily Collyriinae, a second genus of ichneumonid flies (Aubertiellagen. nov.) is established for Collyria nigricator Aubert, 1964 previously known only from Syria. The new genus differs from Collyria Schiødte, 1839 in having the mouth hollow much broader than face, malar space very short, lower tooth of mandible strongly elongate, and tergites 7 and 8 not enlarged and retracted into abdomen (these tergites are always modified and strongly projecting in Collyria). Key for both genera of the subfamily is given. Female of Aubertiella nigricator (Aubert, 1964), comb. nov., previously unknown, is described. This species is recorded from Israel for the first time.
Key words: Palaearctic, Israel, ichneumonid flies, Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae, Collyriinae, Aubertiella, new genus
