Abstract

Species of the chalcidoid genus Leucospis have most frequently been found to parasitize bees of the subfamily Megachilinae (Osmia, Chalicodoma, Megachile, Anthidium, Dianthidium, Heriades) or Anthophorinae (Anthophora). A few have been reared from wasps of the subfamily Eumeninae (Rygchium, Odynerus) or Sphecinae (Sceliphron). Up to now, none has been reared from a bee of the subfamily Xylocopinae, so it is interesting to find that there is a South American Leucospis that parasitizes Xylocopa. This Leucospis is described below to make its name available for use in a paper on the biology of its host.
