Reevaluation of the odd chrysidid genus Atoposega Krombein (Hymenoptera, Chrysididae, Amiseginae).

Kimsey LS - Zookeys (2014)

Bottom Line: The south Asian amisegine genus Atoposega Krombein, 1957, is reevaluated.Three new species, A. rufithorax, A. striata and A. thailandica are described from Thailand and the previously described species, A. lineata (Krombein, 1957) from Borneo, A. rieki (Krombein, 1957) from Myanmar and A. simulans Kimsey, 1986 from Malaysia are redescribed.Atoposega is only known from females.

ABSTRACT
The south Asian amisegine genus Atoposega Krombein, 1957, is reevaluated. Three new species, A. rufithorax, A. striata and A. thailandica are described from Thailand and the previously described species, A. lineata (Krombein, 1957) from Borneo, A. rieki (Krombein, 1957) from Myanmar and A. simulans Kimsey, 1986 from Malaysia are redescribed. The species, A. decorata Kimsey, 1995, was found to lack the generic characters diagnostic for Atoposega. Atoposega is only known from females.

No MeSH data available.

Figure 1: Distribution map of Atoposega species. The location of Atoposega rieki is centrally placed in-country as the actual locality is unknown.

Mentions: Species of Atoposega are known from southern Asia (Fig. 1). The intensive survey of Hymenoptera of Thailand, a U.S. National Science Foundation project, NSF No. 0542864, headed by Michael Sharkey revealed several additional species of Atoposega. The one species outside of this region, Atoposega decorata Kimsey, 1995, from New Caledonia lacks many of the generic traits that characterize Atoposega and is probably not congeneric. Thus this species is not included in this study, and will be treated in a separate paper.
