1 BOLLETTINO del LABORATORIO DI ENTOMOLOGIA AGRARIA Boll. Lab. Ent. agr. Filippo Silvestri 61: GENNARO VIGGIANI Dipartimento di Entomologia e Zoologia Agraria «Filippo Silvestri», Università degli Studi di Napoli «Federico II», Portici, Italia MERCEDES VELASQUEZ DE RIOS Universidad Nacional Experimental Rómulo Gallegos, Área de Ingenería, San Juan de los Morros, Estado Guárico, Venezuela New Trichogrammatidae (Hymenoptera) from Venezuela Abstract Prouscana lineacalvata n. gen., n. sp., Adryas longiclavata n. sp., A. breviterebrata n. sp., A. intermedia n. sp., Pseuduscana neotropica n. sp., Lathromeroidea longiclavata n. sp., Burksiella altagraciae n. sp. and B. platysetosa n. sp. (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae) are described from Venezuela. Key words: trichogrammatid, Prouscana, Adryas, Pseuduscana, Lathromeroidea, Burksiella, Venezuela. Among the trichogrammatids collected in Venezuela by one of us (M. V.) several undescribed genera and species have been found. Previously VIG- GIANI & VELASQUEZ (2004) described the unusual genus Pteroanomalogramma. The description of a new genus and of seven new species will be given in the present paper. Most terms and acronyms used follow DOUTT & VIGGIANI (1968), others are defined in the text. The holotypes and some paratypes will be preserved in the entomological collection of the Dipartimento di Entomologia e Zoologia Agraria «Filippo Silvestri», Università degli Studi di Napoli «Federico II», Portici (NA), Italia. Other paratypes will be preserved in the entomological collection of the Universidad Nacional Experimental Rómulo Gallegos, Área de Ingenería, San Juan de los Morros, Estado Guárico, Venezuela.

Genitalia (Fig. IV, 7) simple, tubular, 0.05 mm in length. Etimology In reference to the seta pattern on the fore wing. Material examined. Holotype,, Venezuela, Aragua, Cuyagua, 18.XI.1999, coll. J.L. Garcia. Allotype,, same data as holotype. Paratypes: 1, Venezuela, Aragua, Choroní, 4.VIII.1999, coll. J.L. Garcia; 1, Venezuela, Aragua, Cumboto, 12.VIII.1999, coll. J.L. Garcia. Comment. The new genus Prouscana clearly belongs to the Trichogrammatidae Oligositinae Chaetostrichini (VIGGIANI, 1971) and appears related to the genus Uscana Girault, mainly for the antennal features. For some characters concerning the dense discal ciliation, the new genus appears allied to Tumidifemur Girault. PINTO (2006) apparently widened the definition of the latter genus including also specimens here used to described Prouscana.

In reference to the site from which the species was collected. Comment. P. neotropica can be distinguished from the only described species of the genus Pseuduscana Pinto (PINTO, 2006), P. sola Pinto, by several characters: midlobe of mesoscutum with two pairs of setae, longest fringe setae of the fore wing one/third of the disc and copulatory organ with aedeagus fused with the phallobase which lacks of parameres and digiti. According to PINTO (2006) the genus includes species very homogeneous in female sex, yet the male genitalia are more variable and can help in the specie diagnosis.
