The Cryptini Petila new genus, from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, is proposed, described, illustrated, and cladistically compared with representative species of ten genera of the subtribe Lymeonina and six outgroup species. A total of 19 species and 87 characters were evaluated. All analyses clearly suggest that Petila must indeed be treated as a distinct genus, closest to Polycyrtidea Viereck. The species Petila capixaba, new species, is described and illustrated. 
Phylogenetic revision and the origin of Polyphrix Townes (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae, Cryptinae), with description of a new species
All analyses recovered all known Polyphrix species as a monophyletic group and an Amazonian origin of the genus, with species from northern Brazil appearing basally in the clade, while both Atlantic Forest species appear as sister groups.
Phylogeny and description of Eknomia , a morphologically unusual new genus of Neotropical Cryptinae (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae), with three new species
The Cryptini Eknomia Santos et Aguiar gen. nov. is proposed, described, and cladistically compared with representatives of 40 outgroup genera from twelve cryptine subtribes and can be treated as a distinct genus.
Phylogeny and revision of Messatoporus Cushman (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae, Cryptinae), with descriptions of sixty five new species.
The large New World genus Messatoporus Cushman is diagnosed, redefined, described, and its species revised, and the results also support the monophyletic group of Osprynchotina, in a clade including also Dotocryptus Brèthes.
Phylogeny and reclassification of Cryptini (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae, Cryptinae), with implications for ichneumonid higher‐level classification
The first comprehensive phylogenetic study of the wasp tribe Cryptini is presented, based on 109 morphological characters and molecular data from seven loci, and shows little support for the current subtribal classification, with most subtribes recovered as polyphyletic.
