Abstract

The present contribution is a catalogue of the Jean Risbec collection, including specimens mounted on microscope slides and belonging to Eupelmidae Walker, 1833 or originally described in Eupelmidae, as well as the point-mounted or card mounted specimens originally on these slides. Lectotypes are designated for 19 species. Eleven new combinations are proposed. The genus Fanamokala Risbec, 1960 described in Pteromalidae Dalman, 1820 is treated as a junior synonym of Eupelmus Dalman, 1820, subgenus Episolindelia Girault, 1914 n. syn. The following seven specific or subspecific synonymies are made: Anastatus aliberti var. bruniptera Risbec, 1951, Anastatus nezarae Risbec, 1951, and Anastatus rhynchitidi Risbec, 1951 n. syn. of Anastatus (Anastatus) aliberti Risbec, 1951, Brasema leersiae var. garouae Risbec, 1955 n. syn. of Eupelmus (Episolindelia) australiensis (Girault, 1913), Brasema leersiae Risbec, 1956 n. syn. of Eupelmus (Episolindelia) testaceiventris (Motschulsky, 1863), Bruchocida batataephila Risbec, 1951 n. syn. of Eupelmus (Eupelmus) elongatus Risbec, 1851, and Macreupelmus australis Risbec, 1952 n. syn. of Eupelmus (Eupelmus) fissicollis Risbec, 1952. Specific status is proposed for Anastatus pseudocreobotrae Risbec, 1951 n. stat., Eupelmus (Macroneura) psychephagus Risbec, 1951 n. stat., Neanastatus bicolor Risbec, 1951 and Neanastatus platygasteri Risbec, 1956 n. stat., all described originally as varieties. Vignalia halyomorphae Risbec, 1951 is removed from synonymy under Anastatus nezarae Risbec, 1951 as Anastatus (Anastatus) halyomorphae (Risbec, 1951) rev. stat. and n. comb.
