Description of three new species of Psilocera Walker from India, with a key to the Oriental species (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea: Pteromalidae)

Main Article Content

P.M. Sureshan


Three new species of Psilocera Walker (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), P. keralensis sp. nov., P. intermedia sp. nov. and P. namdaphaensis sp. nov., are described. The latter two new species were earlier described by Sureshan (2011) in an electronic publication not recognized by the ICZN and have, therefore, become unavailable names. The affinities of the new species with the other known species are discussed. A key to the oriental species of Psilocera is also provided.
