Three subfamilies are classified in Eupelmidae: Calosotinae Boucek, Eupelminae Walker, and Metapelmatinae Boucek. Diagnoses of these three subfamilies and of Tanaostigmatidae are given, together with a key to distinguish members from each other and from other Chalcidoidea. Genera of Calosotinae and Metapelmatinae are revised for the world, with a key to genera given for both subfamilies. For each genus the following is provided: synonymy, description of structural features of males and females… 
Description of three new genera and four new species of Neanastatinae (Hymenoptera, Eupelmidae) from Baltic amber, with discussion of their relationships to extant taxa
TLDR
Structural features of Neanaperiallus and Aspidopleura indicate that except for a greatly enlarged acropleuron the groundplan structure of NeAnastatinae was similar to male Eupelminae or some Cleonyminae (Pteromalidae).
Cales (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea): morphology of an enigmatic taxon with a review of species
TLDR
A detailed morphological study of Calesinae, a small group of Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera) that are parasitoids of whiteflies (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae), with an emphasis on Australian species is presented.
Description of Leptoomus janzeni , n. gen. and n. sp. (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) from Baltic amber, and discussion of its relationships and classification relative to Eupelmidae, Tanaostigmatidae and Encyrtidae
Leptoomus janzeni, n. gen. and n. sp., is described from 5 females and 2 males in 7 pieces of Baltic amber. An enlarged acropleuron forming the entire mesopleuron places the taxon within Eupelmidae,
Revision of Eopelma Gibson (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea: Eupelmidae: Neanastatinae)

TLDR
The genus is redescribed and the described species are keyed and illustrated through macrophotography and apparent sexual dimorphism in color and setal patterns of the fore wings are discussed and hypothesized as important in male courtship displays for pre-copulatory species recognition.
Calosota Curtis (Hymenoptera, Chalcidoidea, Eupelmidae) – review of the New World and European fauna including revision of species from the West Indies and Central and North America
TLDR
Two of three species previously classified in Calosota Curtis from the Neotropical region are transferred to Eupelminae, andCalosota grylli Erdös is confirmed as a separate species from CalosOTA metallica based on features of both sexes.
Calosota Curtis (Hymenoptera, Chalcidoidea, Eupelmidae) – review of the New World and European fauna including revision of species from the West Indies and Central and North America
TLDR
The species of Calosota from the New World excluding South America are revised, including the seven newly described speciesCalosota albipalpussp.
First record of the genus Oodera Westwood, 1874 (Hymenoptera, Pteromalidae, Cleonyminae, Ooderini) from the Arabian Peninsula, with the description of four new species
TLDR
Four new species of Oodera Westwood are recorded for the first time for the Arabian Peninsula, from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Sultanate of Oman, based on specimens reared from xylophagous beetle larvae infesting dead Acacia trees.
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.
Taxonomic revision of the genus Oodera Westwood, 1874 (Hymenoptera, Chalcidoidea, Pteromalidae, Cleonyminae), with description of ten new species
TLDR
The world species of Oodera Westwood, 1874 (Chalcidoidea: Pteromalidae: Cleonyminae: Ooderini) are revised and based on morphological characters assign 110 specimens to 20 recognised species, of which the following ten are described as new.
Redescription of the types of species of Anastatus Motschulsky, 1859 (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea: Eupelmidae) described by J.K. Sheng and coauthors
TLDR
Six species of Anastatus Motschulsky were described from China in Chinese by J.K. Sheng and coauthors in 1997 and 1998 and redescribed in detail in English based on original type material, illustrating the species through macrophotography of type material and providing a key to differentiate females of the species.
