Austroterobia Girault

( Figs 1–71 View FIGURES 1, 2 View FIGURES 3 – 10 View FIGURES 11, 12 View FIGURES 13 – 20 )

Austroterobia Girault, 1938: 86 ; type species: A. partibrunnea Girault, 1938 , by monotypy.

Diagnosis. Both sexes: clava symmetric (100%) ( Figs 6 View FIGURES 3 – 10 , 16 View FIGURES 13 – 20 , 24 View FIGURES 22 – 28 , 34, 35 View FIGURES 32 – 39 , 46 View FIGURES 43 – 50 , 56 View FIGURES 54 – 60 , 66, 67 View FIGURES 64 – 71 ); anterior margin of propodeum without any flange-like projections partially concealing dorsellum, propodeum with median area at least slightly sculptured and with almost complete plicae (88%) ( Figs 9 View FIGURES 3 – 10 , 19 View FIGURES 13 – 20 , 50 View FIGURES 43 – 50 , 59 View FIGURES 54 – 60 , 70 View FIGURES 64 – 71 ); lateral side of prothorax without visible membranous area between posteroventral corner of pronotum and fore coxa, posteroventral corner of pronotum long and acute (100%) ( Figs 8 View FIGURES 3 – 10 , 27 View FIGURES 22 – 28 , 49 View FIGURES 43 – 50 , 58 View FIGURES 54 – 60 , 69 View FIGURES 64 – 71 ); posterior margin of gena carinate (88%); medial ventral margin of scape not carinate (100%) ( Figs 22 View FIGURES 22 – 28 , 54 View FIGURES 54 – 60 ); antenna inserted at or above middle of face (88%) ( Figs 13 View FIGURES 13 – 20 , 32 View FIGURES 32 – 39 , 43 View FIGURES 43 – 50 , 54 View FIGURES 54 – 60 ); left mandible with 2 teeth (88%) ( Figs 13 View FIGURES 13 – 20 , 22 View FIGURES 22 – 28 , 54 View FIGURES 54 – 60 , 64 View FIGURES 64 – 71 ); inner tooth of both mandibles undivided (88%) ( Figs 13 View FIGURES 13 – 20 , 54 View FIGURES 54 – 60 ); posterior part of mesoscutellum not surpassing base of propodeum, without median spine (88%) ( Figs 7 View FIGURES 3 – 10 , 17 View FIGURES 13 – 20 , 48 View FIGURES 43 – 50 , 57 View FIGURES 54 – 60 , 68 View FIGURES 64 – 71 ); marginal vein equal to or longer than stigmal vein (88%) ( Figs 10 View FIGURES 3 – 10 , 20 View FIGURES 13 – 20 , 39 View FIGURES 32 – 39 , 47 View FIGURES 43 – 50 , 60 View FIGURES 54 – 60 , 71 View FIGURES 64 – 71 ); notauli complete (63%) ( Figs 17 View FIGURES 13 – 20 , 36 View FIGURES 32 – 39 , 48 View FIGURES 43 – 50 , 57 View FIGURES 54 – 60 , 68 View FIGURES 64 – 71 ). Male: scape with ventral protuberance towards apex (100%) ( Figs 31 View FIGURES 29 – 31 , 35 View FIGURES 32 – 39 , 42 View FIGURES 40 – 42 ).

Remarks. Because of the many exceptions discovered after the description of Teasienna , the differences between Austroterobia and Teasienna are less conspicuous and partly different from those presented by Heydon (2004). The diagnoses of the two genera given in the present paper are intended to redefine these generic limits. Biology is known only for A. iceryae , which attacks two species of Monophlebidae ( Hemiptera : Coccoidea) ( Bouček 2004). Austroterobia maldica was obtained from an unknown species of Icerya on mango ( Narendran & Das 2000). Based on their morphology, the other species are expected to attack similar taxa.
