Calixomeria, a new genus of Sceliotrachelinae (Hymenoptera, Platygastridae) from Australia

Zachary Lahey, Lubomír Masner, Norman F. Johnson. 2019. ZooKeys 830: 63-73.
Calixomeria lasallei gen. n. et sp. n. is described as a new genus and species of Sceliotrachelinae. Calixomeria most closely resembles genera of the Aphanomerus-cluster but possesses several characters that readily separate it from other sceliotracheline genera. The key of Masner and Huggert (1989) is modified to accommodate Calixomeria, and the relationship of the genus to other members of the subfamily is discussed.
