Remarks. Krieger (1905: 302) described N. pectoralis Krieger, 1905   as a form of N. lineata Smith   from Peru. Type of this taxon is lost, and it was included as a subspecies of N. concolor   by Townes ( Townes & Townes 1966: 32) and Yu et al. (2016), but actually taxonomical status of N. pectoralis   is unclear.

Variation. Mexican specimens have hind leg with tarsus often widely yellowish basally, sometimes only the apical tarsomere is black while remaining tarsomeres are yellow.

Distribution. Mexico (Nuevo León, Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosí, Nayarit, Querétaro, Veracruz, Guerrero, Morelos, Oaxaca, Tabasco, Chiapas), Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil. First record from Honduras.

Biology. Reared from unidentified coocons of Lepidoptera   infested also with Zonopimpla carolinae Gauld   ( Ichneumonidae   : Pimplinae   ), and probably is hyperparasitoid of this pimpline species ( Gauld 1991).
