Abstract

Background

A revised checklist of the British and Irish Chalcidoidea and Mymarommatoidea substantially updates the previous comprehensive checklist, dating from 1978. Country level data (i.e. occurrence in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the Isle of Man) is reported where known.

New information

A total of 1754 British and Irish Chalcidoidea species represents a 22% increase on the number of British species known in 1978.

Keywords

Chalcidoidea, Mymarommatoidea, fauna.

Introduction

This paper continues the series of checklists of the Hymenoptera of Britain and Ireland, starting with Broad and Livermore (2014a), Broad and Livermore (2014b) and Liston et al. (2014). The Introduction to the series (Broad 2014) sets out the background and rationale. We aim to produce an up-to-date and accurate list of all Hymenoptera species recorded reliably from Britain and Ireland.

With more than 22,000 described species worldwide, Chalcidoidea is one of the largest and most diverse Hymenoptera superfamilies. Most species are under 3mm, and the group includes the smallest known winged insect, Kikiki huna Huber & Beardsley (a mymarid not found in the British Isles) measuring only 0.16 mm in body length (Huber and Noyes 2013). Chalcidoidea show an amazingly diverse range of biologies; the majority of taxa are parasitoids, attacking all stages of hosts in most insect orders as well as some arachnids, but phytophagous taxa and taxa with predatory larvae are also known. Information about Chalcidoidea classification and biology can be found in John Noyes’s Universal Chalcidoidea Database (UCD), which contains original citations as well as references for all subsequent generic combinations and synonymies, and extensive lists of published host and distribution records. While the latter can be used to generate regional lists of Chalcidoidea, a British and Irish species list extracted from the UCD will not match the present checklist, from which published erroneous records have been removed and to which a large number of unpublished records based on reliably identified specimens in collections have been added.

Currently 22 (extant) Chalcidoidea families are recognized, 16 of which are represented in the British and Irish fauna. There have been some changes to the family-level classification recently (Heraty et al. 2013) and more may be anticipated. The only family-level change resulting from the Heraty et al. (2013) study that affects the British fauna is the elevation of the Azotidae to family status, from being a subfamily of the Aphelinidae. However, other major changes to the classification of Chalcidoidea since the 1978 checklist (Bouček and Graham 1978) include the removal of Mymarommatidae to its own superfamily (Gibson 1986; Noyes and Valentine 1989), the restriction of the Miscogastrinae of the Pteromalidae to just Graham’s (1969) tribe Miscogasterini (Bouček 1988), the inclusion of the family Elasmidae as a tribe of Eulophinae (Gauthier et al. 2000), and the synonymy of the Pteromalidae subfamilies Cratominae and Panstenoninae under Pteromalinae (Heraty et al. 2013).

The British and Irish Chalcidoidea list, with 1754 species, is now 22% larger than in 1978 (see Table 1). This increase results mainly from additional records (including 42 unpublished records obtained from collection surveys - see Suppl. material 3) but also to a lesser extent from a net "gain" of taxa through taxonomic changes, as summarised in Table 2. Only 4 species included in the 1978 checklist have been excluded: Elasmus rufiventris Ferrière, Tetrastichus agrilorum (Ratzeburg), Tetrastichus tompanus (Erdös) and Entedon ulmi Erdös. A detailed comparison of the 1978 checklist with the 2016 checklist can be found in Suppl. material 2.

Numbers of confirmed British and Irish Chalcidoidea species in the 1978 and current checklists (not including known introductions that have failed to establish in the wild or nomina dubia). The species numbers indicated in Broad (2014) have been updated to include new published records and records resulting from work done on the BMNH collections.

Materials and methods

The bulk of the data behind this checklist is from the UCD, with further editing and research by the authors. Nomenclature follows the UCD, and distribution data are taken from the collections of the BMNH, the UCD and from various published sources, which are cited. Nomenclatural acts can be traced through the UCD; deviations from that source are cited. A more complete methodology can be found in Broad (2014). Although we include extensive synonymy, this is a checklist and not a catalogue. Names that have been used in relevant literature can be found here but we do not document all taxonomic acts as these can be traced in readily accessible catalogues, particularly the UCD.

The following conventions and abbreviations are used here:

[species] taxon deleted from the British and Irish list

BMNH Natural History Museum, London

# known or suspected introductions with at least temporarily self-sustaining populations

? status (including uncertain synonymy) or identification in the British Isles uncertain

misident. has been misidentified as this name

[species nom. dub]. nomen dubium, a name of doubtful status

nom. ob. nomen oblitum, ‘forgotten name’, does not have priority over a younger name

nom. nov. nomen novum, a replacement name

nom. nud. nomen nudum, an unavailable name, with no type specimen

preocc. name preoccupied (junior homonym)

stat. rev. status revocatus, revived status (e.g., raised from synonymy)

unavailable name unavailable under provisions of the ICZN code

var. variety, only available as a valid name under certain provisions of the ICZN code

An alternative version of the Chalcidoidea checklist as an Excel spreadsheet is provided here in the supplementary materials (Suppl. material 1).

Future updates to the British and Irish Chalcioidea checklist will be incorporated in an online version of the checklist at Hymenoptera of the British Isles.
