Ooctonus Haliday (Hymenoptera: Mymaridae) contains four species in the Neotropical Region: O. clebschi Huber, sp. n., O. costaricensis Huber, sp. n., O. woolleyi Huber, sp. n., and O. zolnerowichi Huber, sp. n. Ooctonus costaricensis represents the furthest south Ooctonus has been recorded in the New World. An illustrated identification key to females is given. The genus is compared with Boudiennyia Girault, known only from Australia and New Caledonia. Despite many similarities, Ooctonus is… Expand

A Molecular Phylogeny of the Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera)
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.
