Brief Summary

Read full entry

Tanaostigmatidae is a small family of Chalcidoidea that occurs in all tropical regions of the world, although with most species known from the Neotropics. Most species are phytophagous and act as gall inducers or inquilines within galls induced by other species (La Salle, 2005, 2006). Trees or shrubs of Fabaceae (Mimosoidea) appear to be preferred host plants, although there are numerous records of other host plants (LaSalle, 2006).
