Pimpla destructor Smith, 1874  

( Figure 27 View Figure 27 )

Pimpla destructor Smith, 1874   ; primary homonym of Pimpla destructor   , 1863; junior synonym of Apechthis capulifera ( Kriechbaumer, 1887)   .

Pimpla japonica Dalla Torre, 1901 in Dalla Torre (1902)   ; replacement name for Pimpla destructor Smith, 1874   .

Apechthis japonica Morley, 1914b   ; replacement name for Pimpla destructor Smith, 1874   ; secondary homonym of Apechthis japonica (Dalla Torre, 1901)   .

Taxonomic history. The specific name ‘ destructor   ’ is preoccupied by Pimpla destructor Smith, 1863   , therefore, Dalla Torre (1902) proposed the replacement name Pimpla japonica Dalla Torre, 1901   ; moreover, Morley (1914b) also proposed the same replacement name for Pimpla destructor Smith, 1874   and transferred the species to Apechthis   ; Förster, 1869, but the replacement name (i.e. ‘ japonica’) is a secondary homonym of Apechthis japonica (Dalla Torre, 1901)   .

Current taxonomy. Junior synonym of Apechthis capulifera ( Kriechbaumer, 1887)   ( Ichneumonidae   : Pimplinae   : Pimplini   ).
