Heresiarchini

Coelichneumon deliratorius, copyright Stuart Tingley.

Belongs within: Ichneumonidae.

The Heresiarchini are a cosmopolitan group of large ichneumons in which the propodeal ‘boss’ is formed from the entire area superomedia and the strongest carinae radiating back from it are the ones separating the area dentipara from the areae postero-externa (Gauld 1984, as Protichneumonini). Members of the Eurasian genus Heresiarches have sickle-shaped mandibles and a smooth shining area uniting the area superomedia and area basalis of the propodeum.
