4 funicular segments. Notauli complete though sometimes partially obscured by
mesoscutal sculpture; scutellum with a sometimes faint median groove;
with complete sublateral grooves converging, but not quite meeting, meeting posteriorly,
their margins relatively sharp. Propodeum with irregular transverse rugae;
plicae and median carina present. Compare with: Miotropis.
Diglyphomorpha scutellum and propodeum
Diglyphomorpha vertex and occiput
Comments: 1 described
species: D. aurea (Howard). Part of a distinct group of Eulophines with complete
notauli and a rugulose propodeum, specimens of this genus have been mischaracterized as
having a more regular set of rugae than they really do.
Miotropis: Certain species, formerly
classified in Cirrospiloideus, with faint propodeal rugae, but these have very
faint scutellar grooves that are not traceable past the posterior pair of setal sockets
without very careful observation through high-resolution microscopes, and never have
plicae. Scutellum never with a median longitudinal groove.
