Hubbardiella Ashmead, 1904 return to: prev(Eul8) prev(eud1) home
Males with nodose flagellomeres. Mesosoma strongly resembling that of
a Eucharitid: pronotum, propodeum, and dorsellum nearly vertical, hidden from
dorsal view, scutellum overhanging dorsellum and propodeum; notauli incomplete,
present only posteriorly. 2 faint rows of setae radiating from stigma. Propodeum
with distinct median carina. Only 7 distinct gastral tergites (epipygium
absent) in both sexes--this confirmed by the author (unpublished data) from a
specimen collected in Guatemala.
1a: Hubbardiella head and mesosoma
Comments: 1 described
species: H. arizonensis Ashmead. Not easily confused with other Nearctic
Eulophids. This genus is unique among Euderines in that females have only 7 gastral
tergites, lacking an epipygium.
