S: Tortricidae, Aesiocopa necrofolia. Distribution. Costa Rica, ACG. Etymology. We dedicate this species to Ana Piedra in recognition of her diligent efforts for the ACG Programa de Educacion Biol ica. Comments. A. anapiedrae shares with the diatraeae and guadaluperodriguezae groups a somewhat CBR-5884 site depressed body (dorso-ventrally), short antenna, and relatively small body size; however, it has an inflexible (unfolded) hypopygium without any pleats, a very small smooth area on lateral face of scutellum (0.2 ?as high as maximum height of lateral face), and parasitizes a completely different group of Lepidoptera. The sculpture of propodeum and the areola shape are similar to species of the diatraeae group (but the latter group has a pleated hypopygium, a longer ovipositor, and the smooth area on lateral face of scutellum is at least 0.5 ?as high as maximum height of lateral face). A. anapiedrae does not resemble typical species of Apanteles because of its propodeal areola and unpleated hypopygium. It is likely to represent a derived speciesgroup within Apanteles, or it might be placed in another genus. Pending further study of worldwide genera of Microgastrinae, we decided to describe the species under Apanteles because is the closest match at the moment.
