A new species of parasitoid wasp, Meteorus oviedoi Shaw and Nishida (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), is described from the Central Valley of Costa Rica. The new species is diagnosed and compared to other species in the genus. It was reared from larvae of Venadicodia caneti (Lepidoptera: Limacodidae) on leaves of Licaria triandra (Lauraceae). The parasitoid is gregarious and modifies the behavior of its host. This is the first record of a Meteorus species attacking Limacodidae in Costa Rica.Una nueva… Expand
