Abstract A checklist of 115 fig wasp species (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) recorded within the present political boundary of India till 2015 is provided along with a fig–fig wasp host catalogue. Fig wasp taxa have been arranged according to the current classification among 4 families, 6 subfamilies and 33 genera. For each species, correct nomenclature followed by all relevant works reporting systematics and ecology of Indian fig wasps have been provided along with synonyms, host records and… 
Contribution to the knowledge of the Ormyrus (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea: Ormyridae) with two new records from India
The present research was aimed to study the distribution of Ormyridae fauna of Indian states between 2006 and 2016 except Ormyrus longicaudus was collected in 1965 from Karnataka. The results


A phylogenetic analysis of the megadiverse Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera)
The first phylogenetic analysis of the superfamily Chalcidoidea based on both morphological and molecular data is presented and several life‐history traits are mapped onto the new phylogeny.
Provisional host catalogue of Fig wasps (Hymenoptera, Chalcidoidea)
The Chalcidoidea of the family Torymidae, subfamily Sycophaginae, and most of the other inquilines, should be thoroughly revised before a critical list of their host preferences can be presented.
Redescription of the fig wasp genus Sycophilodes Joseph (Chalcidoidea: Pteromalidae: Epichrysomallinae) with description of a new species from India.
The genus Sycophilodes is revised with redescription of the male and the first description of the female of its only currently included species, S. moniliformis, and a key for distinguishing both sexes of the two included species is presented.
Laying the foundations for a new classification of Agaonidae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea), a multilocus phylogenetic approach
A phylogeny of the Agaonidae, pollinators of Ficus species (Moraceae), is estimated using 4182 nucleotides from six genes, obtained from 101 species representing 19 of the 20 recognized genera, and four outgroups and a new classification is proposed.
The genera of chalcidoid wasps from Ficus fruit in the New World
A key illustrated with 70 line drawings has been prepared for the genera of chalcidoid wasps associated with fruit of Ficus species of the Americas, including those introduced as ornamental trees
Biosystematics and biogeography of Oriental Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera) Associated with plant galls
Morphological features tend to support the monophyletic origin of Chalcidoidea and no hypothesis is acceptable totally to a chalcidologist, since a comprehensive knowledge on the distribution of the character states throughout the superfamily is lacking.
Fig - Wasps (Chalcidoidea) of Hong Kong I. Agaonidae
Four new species represent the first records of agaonids from three different Series and one Subsection of the genus Ficus, as well as a provisional key to females of the genera of Agaonidae collected from Hong Kong.
Fig wasps from Ficus dzumacensis, with notes on the genus Sycobiella Westwood
A sample of fig wasps from New Caledonia, sent to me by Mr. E. H. Corner, contained a species of Blastophaga Gravenhorst (Agaonidae) and aspecies of Sycobiella Westwood (Torymidae), which is the first to become known in both sexes.
New fig insects [Hym.: Chalcidoidea] from India: Three torymids parasitic on agaonids
Two new species of fig wasps, and the female of a known species (Philotrypesis angulicepsWestwood) parasitic onBlastophaga quadraticepsMayr fromFicus religiosa L. chezFicus amplissimaSmith.
Molecular phylogeny of fig wasps Agaonidae are not monophyletic.
