Andricus incomptum Kinsey, 1920: 306  

Cynips incomptum (Kinsey) Pujade-Villar and Ferrer-Suay (2015: 8)   .

Type material: ‘‘ San Luis Potosi, Mex., Kinsey cutex gall, 4.29.19 ’’, ‘‘ Andricus   incomptus CO- TYPE’’ (red label), ‘‘ AMNH_IZC 00322871 ’’, ‘‘ LECTOTYPE Andricus incomptum Kinsey, 1920: 306   design. M. Ferrer-Suay 2016 ’’ (red label).  

Comments. According to the original description two female and 28 gall cotypes were deposited in the MCZ and in the author’s collection, and only a cotype gall in the AMNH. However, the female (cotype) was found in the Kinsey collection deposited in the AMNH and it is designated as lectotype and has been so labeled by the first author. This species was originally described as Andricus   and was transferred to Cynips   by Pujade- Villar and Ferrer-Suay (2015) because the head has no irradiating carinae and the ventral spine of hypopygium is wide with parallel sides, with an apical tuft of setae. Images of the lectotype and its labels are given in Fig. 3 View Fig. 3 .
