Abstract

Only two genera in the family Tiphiidae, Methocha Latreille (Methochinae) and Pterornbrus Smith (Myzininae), are now known to include species parasitic on the larvae of tiger beetles. The genus Pteronibrus is primarily a tropical group with one species occurring in the United St ates. Williams (1919) in his study of two Philippine specie, P. cicindelicidus Williams and P. iheringi Ducke, has provided the basis of our knowledge on the biology of that genus. M ethochci is a relatively homogeneous group found in each major zoogc-ographical area of the world with exception of the Australian (Pate, 1941). The biology of several species of Methocha has been reported.
