Brief Summary
provided by EOL authors

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).

Tanaostigmatidae
provided by wikipedia EN

The Tanaostigmatidae are a small family of parasitic wasps in the superfamily Chalcidoidea. They are almost exclusively phytophagous insects, forming galls in plant stems, leaves, or seeds. The some 90 species in 9 genera are primarily tropical and subtropical.

They are typically short, squat wasps, best recognized by a protruding prepectus, and the mesonotum is often strongly arched, so the pronotum is nearly vertical.
