Twenty-three characters or character systems of adults and larvae of Terebrantes are analyzed for evidence of monophyly and phyletic relationships of Chalcidoidea, Mymaridae, and Mymarommatidae. The taxa are considered to be a monophyletic group based on 3 hypothesized synapomorphies: mesotrochanteral depressor without fu 2 -tr 2 or mesoscutal portion of t 2 -tr 2 ; axillar phragma as site of origin for all or part of t,-tr 2 muscle; and independent basal ring absent from male genitalia. The… 
Phylogenetics and classification of Chalcidoidea and Mymarommatoidea — a review of current concepts (Hymenoptera, Apocrita)
TLDR
Mymaridae are indicated as the likely sister group of all other Chalcidoidea by: two features of the ovipositor, the unique structure of a muscle between the mesofurca and axillary lever, and sequence data from the 28s rDNA gene.
Sister‐group relationships of the Platygastroidea and Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera) — an alternate hypothesis to Rasnitsyn (1988)
TLDR
Retention of an independent prepectus and a mesotergal‐mesotrochanteral depressor muscle indicates that Chalcidoidea + Mymarommatoidea are a relatively early clade of Apocrita but does not indicate exact relationships.
A basal chalcidoid (Insecta: Hymenoptera) from the earliest Cretaceous or latest Jurassic of Mongolia
TLDR
Character analysis suggests that the fossil belongs to a putative basal group of the Chalcidoidea, and the small size of this species is discussed in relation to conflicting scenarios concerning the plesiomorphic biology of the chalcidoid+proctotrupoid linage.
Phylogenetic implications of the mesosomal skeleton in Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera, Apocrita) – tree searches in a jungle of homoplasy
TLDR
Three previously unreported putative autapomorphies of Chalcidoidea were revealed: presence of an exposed, triangular or diamond-shaped prosternum, presence of a percurrent mesopleural sulcus anteriorly terminating in the acropleuron, and presence of paired metapectal plates lateral to the metafurca.
The pretarsus in Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera Parasitica): functional morphology and possible phylogenetic implications
TLDR
The structure of the pretarsus of chalcid wasps (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) was examined with light and scanning electron microscopy and characters may be correlated with differences in body size that characterize the different lineages rather than being phylogenetically important.
A Molecular Phylogeny of the Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera)
TLDR
This first comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the superfamily Chalcidoidea based on a molecular analysis of 18S and 28S ribosomal gene regions for 19 families, 72 subfamilies, 343 genera and 649 species finds no impact of alignment method, and few but substantial differences between likelihood and parsimony approaches.
Morphology of the antenna cleaner in the Hymenoptera with particular reference to non‐aculeate families (Insecta)
An electron microscopic survey of antenna cleaner morphology, mainly in non‐aculcate Hymenoptera, is presented. Modified, scale‐ or paddle‐shaped setae on the fore basitarsus were found to be widely
Phylogeny and early evolution of the Cynipoidea (Hymenoptera)
TLDR
Parsimony analysis of 110 external morphological characters of adults implies that cynipoids were originally parasitoids of wood‐boring insect larvae and that the other modes of life evolved secondarily within the group.
PHYLOGENY AND CLASSIFICATION OF EUPELMIDAE, WITH A REVISION OF THE WORLD GENERA OF CALOSOTINAE AND METAPELMATINAE (HYMENOPTERA: CHALCIDOIDEA)
TLDR
Structural features of adults of the three eupelmid subfamilies, and of other Chalcidoidea including Tanaostigmatidae, Encyrtidae, Aphelinidae, and Pteromalidae, are studied to delimit character states and determine their distribution among the higher taxa.
Skeletal Anatomy of the Mesosoma of Palaeomymar Anomalum (Blood & Kryger, 1922) (Hymenoptera: Mymarommatidae)
TLDR
A sister-group relationship with the Chalcidoidea is the most well supported hypothesis presently, but needs additional corroboration.

TLDR
The character-state distribution of various external and internal pro- and mesothoracic structures of Hymenoptera is described and Ancestral state and transformation of the characters are hypothesized, and shared derived states of higher taxa are determined.

TLDR
The immature stages of Caraphractus cinctus Walker are described and the first-instar larva of Carphractus does not correspond to any of the previously described types of mymarid larvae.
