Glyptapanteles pallipes (Reinhard, 1880)




This species is widely distributed in North America, Europe and Asia, usually from more southern areas, but also recorded from Greenland by Papp (1989). No other specimen has been found in the region since, neither by van Achterberg (2006) nor by us. Specimens deposited in the CNC (from southern localities) have been sampled for DNA barcoding and their sequences are similar to those of G. fulvipes . It seems likely that specimens previously identified and named as G. pallipes or G. fulvipes actually comprise a complex of morphologically cryptic species (e.g., see next species below). Solving that complex is beyond the scope of this paper.
