Abstract The genus Pseudoheptascelio Szabó is redescribed and its species revised. We recognize four species: Pseudoheptascelio muesebecki Szabó, Pseudoheptascelio cornopis Masner, Pseudoheptascelio tico sp. n. and Pseudoheptascelio rex sp. n. The genus is found from Guatemala south to the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. The species Pseudoheptascelio cornopis is recorded as a parasitoid of the eggs of Cornops aquaticum (Bruner) on water hyacinth, Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms. 
Widespread Occurrence of Black-Orange-Black Color Pattern in Hymenoptera
TLDR
The widespread occurrence of this color pattern in Hymenoptera strongly suggests convergent evolution and a potentially important function. Expand
A hymenopterists' guide to the Hymenoptera Anatomy Ontology: Utility, clarification, and future directions
TLDR
The history, development, and utility of the Hymenoptera Anatomy Ontology (HAO) and its associated applications are described and the roles of homology, “preferred terms”, and “structural equivalency” are discussed. Expand
