Mémoires Originaux


In the introduction we emphasize the importance of biological data in the taxonomy of theChalcidoidea. There follow comparative descriptions of six species ofEurytoma, attributed by us to theE. rosae aggregate, two of which are described as new. The descriptions include biological information, and morphological details of adults and eggs.
