Abstract

Aleiodes reisi, a new species of parasitoid wasp with an enlarged, heavily sculptured, carapace-like metasomal tergite IV was reared from the geometrid Macaraia multilineata Packard collected from Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana L) in Missouri. It is described from both female and male specimens. Illustrations are provided of the mummy, the wasp habitus, and a color pattern sexual dimorphism on the first metasomal tergite.
