  author={Daniele Mugrabi and Celso Oliveira Azevedo},
  journal={Check List},
Bethylidae are cosmopolitan wasps, with about 100 valid genera and about 2,400 valid species around the world, with 39 genera recorded from the Afrotropical region. This study aimed to determine the genera of Bethylidae occurring in Madagascar. The specimens were collected in Madagascar with several traps. A total of 18,915 specimens were obtained and 27 genera recognized. Nine of them are already recorded from Madagascar: Epyris , Glenosema , Goniozus Laelius , Pilomesitius Pristocera…

Insecta, Hymenoptera, Bethylidae: range extension and filling gaps in Australia
Dissomphalus, Parascleroderma and Pseudisobrachium are now known from all zoogeographical regions of the world, and Rhabdepyris, Goniozus, Sierola Cameron, Apenesia Westwood and Holepyris Kieffer were found in large series of specimens, which demonstrates the great potential diversity of Bethylidae in this area.

The phylogenetic relationships of Sclerodermini are inferred from a cladistic analysis based on 72 female characters, indicating the paraphyly of the latter tribe.
Ecologia de comunidade de Bethylidae (Hymenoptera, Chrysidoidea) da Reserva Ecológica do Roncador, Brasília, Distrito Federal, Brasil
Bethylidae specimens from the Reserve were studied in its ecological and faunistic aspects and Window trap was more efficient than Malaise trap in terms of genus diversity.

Laelius is recorded from the Afrotropical region for the first time, and two new species are described and illustrated and a key to the species of Madagascar is provided.
Rediscovery of Pristepyris Kieffer (Hymenoptera, Bethylidae), a new synonym of Acrepyris Kieffer
The Epyrinae genus Pristepyris Kieffer is revised and Pristocerinae is considered junior synonym of Acrepyris, because PristEPyris rugicollis is its type-species.
