Material examined. Type material. Centrochalcis ruficaudis  . Lectotype ♀ (BMNH type 5-117) Urochalcis ninae  . Lectotype, here designated, a pinned ♀ labelled ' 26 VII 25 ' / ' Urochalcis ninae  sp. n. type Nikol'skaya det.', [= specimen 21] (in ZIN). Paralectotypes. 1 ♂ labelled 'Transcapia 14 VII 902' [specimen 19], 1 ♀ labelled ' 25 V 953' [specimen 20], 1 ♂ labelled ' 16 VII 28 ' [specimen 18] (in ZIN). Trigonura sphenoptera  . 3 ♀ syntypes pinned and labelled ' 26 VIII 53 ' [specimens 22, 23 & 24], 1 ♀ syntype pinned and labelled ' 15 V 73 ' [specimen 27] (in ZIN). Other material. IRAN: Fars, Sepidan, loc. 10, 23.vi. 2010, (5 ♀) (in JIAU and CIRAD) [GDEL0382 and GDEL0384].

Comment. The species, initially described by Cameron (1913) in Centrochalcis  , is a secondary homonym of Trigonura ruficaudis (Cameron, 1907)  described from South Africa in Phasganophora  . Delvare (2017) replaced it by its first junior synonym.

Distribution. Oriental and West Palaearctic ( India, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Iran and UAE) (Cameron 1913; Nikol'skaya 1952, 1960a, b; Lotfalizadeh & Jafari-Nadushan 2015; Delvare 2017).

Hosts. Recently T. ninae  was reared on Chrysobothris parvipunctata Obenberger, 1914  ( Coleoptera  : Buprestidae  ) from pomegranate trees in central Iran (Lotfalizadeh & Jafari-Nadushan 2015).
