First records of Charipinae (Hymenoptera Cynipoidea Figitidae) from the Corsica island


Charipinae fauna from the Corsica Island has been studied. Five Alloxysta and one Apocharips species are cited for the first time in this island: Alloxysta arcuata (Kieffer, 1902), A. brevis (Thomson, 1862), A. castanea (Hartig, 1841), A. citripes (Thomson, 1862), A. victrix (Westwood, 1833) and Apocharips trapezoidea (Hartig, 1841). These identifications are the first record of these two genera and the Charipinae subfamily from the Corsica Island. Short descriptions and diagnoses are given for all Charipinae species present in this island. A key to distinguish them is also given.
