Two new species of Lymeon Forster and two new species of Latosculum Townes (Cryptinae: Cryptini, Lymeonina) are described and illustrated: Lymeon tobiasi sp. n. and L. yanegai sp. n. from Hon- duras, Latosculum ruizi sp. n. and L. townesi sp. n. from Mexico. A key for identification of the species of Latosculum is given.

First record of the parasitoid wasp Lymeon sp. (Ichneumonidae: Pimplinae) associated with spider eggs-sac of Araneus vincibilis (Araneae: Araneidae) in Northeastern Brazil.
TLDR
It is observed that although the female of A. vincibilis cares for the eggs that were attacked by Lymeon sp, the wasp larva consumed about 80% of spider eggs, indicating that both maternal care and the physical barrier offered by the eggs-sac may not provide absolute defense against predators.
