Remarks

provided by Deans Deitz Wharton et al
Many of the Figitidae are koinobiont endoparasitoids of cyclorrhaphous Diptera, ovipositing in the host larva and emerging from the puparium. The subfamily Eucoilinae contains several species that have been reared from fruit-infesting Tephritidae as well as several other species attacking Drosophilidae, Lonchaeidae, and other cyclorrhaphous Diptera breeding in fruit.

Taxonomic History / Nomenclature

In some of the older literature, eucoilines have been placed in the family Cynipidae or treated as their own family (Eucoilidae).

Subfamily Charipinae

Figitidae is a family of parasitoid wasps. The full diversity of this wasp family is not yet known, but about 1400 species have been described to over 130 genera.[1] For example, the largest subfamily, Eucoilinae (previously considered as a separate family, the Eucoilidae),[2] has over 1000 described species so far, but this is probably just a fraction of the total diversity. Figitid species occur throughout most of the world.[3]

Systematics

As of 2011, there are 12 subfamilies.[3]
