VARGAS R., Juan M. e AZEVEDO, Celso O.. Revison of Alongatepyris (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) with description of a new species from Colombia. Rev. Bras. Zool. [online]. 2008, vol.25, n.4, pp. 843-846. ISSN 0101-8175. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-81752008000400023.
Species of the Neotropical Alongatepyris Azevedo are rarely collected. It is recognized among Sclerodermini genera by having the body extremely flattened and the submedian cell of the fore wing small and completely closed. Originally monotypic, a second species, A. ingens sp. nov. from Colombia, is described and illustrated. This species is characterized by the absence of the radial vein of the fore wing. A diagnosis of A. platunissimus Azevedo, 1992 is presented and both species are compared. A key to species Alongatepyris is provided.
