dc.description.abstract 90 species of Euplectrus are treated: 55 newly described, all from Area de Conservación Guanacaste (ACG), and 35 previously described species, of which 20 occur in ACG. " ree of the previously described species ( E. brasiliensis Ashmead, E. hircinus (Say), E. ronnai (Brèthes)) have unknown status, owing to missing or severely damaged type material. " e new species, all authored by C. Hansson, are: Euplectrus alejandro - valerioi , E. alexsmithi , E. alvarowillei , E. andybennetti , E. andydeansi , E. annettewalkerae , E. billbrowni , E. bobwhartoni , E. carlosarmientoi , E. carlrettenmeyeri , E. charlesmicheneri , E. charlesporteri , E. chrisdarlingi , E. chrisgrinteri , E. corriemoreauae , E. daveroubiki , E. davesmithi , E. davidwahli , E. dianariasae , E. don - quickei , E. eowilsoni , E. garygibsoni , E. gavinbroadi , E. gerarddelvarei , E. henrytownesi , E. howelldalyi , E. hugokonsi , E. iangauldi , E. jacklonginoi , E. jesusugaldei , E. jimwhit ! eldi , E. jjrodriguezae , E. johnheratyi , E. johnlasallei , E. johnnoyesi , E. josefernandezi , E. lubomirmasneri , E. markshawi , E. mikegatesi , E. mike - schau # , E. mikesharkeyi , E. ninazitaniae , E. pammitchellae , E. paulhansoni , E. paulheberti , E. paulhurdi , E. philwardi , E. robbinthorpi , E. ronaldzunigai , E. roysnellingi , E. scottshawi , E. sondrawardae , E. sydneycam - eronae , E. victoriapookae , E. wonyoungchoi . " e species are described or redescribed, and thoroughly and uniformly illustrated, and included in two identi # cation keys, one for females and one for males. Lecto - types are designated for eight species: Euplectrus catocalae Howard ( ƃ ), E. junctus Gahan ( Ƃ ), E. leucotro - phis Howard ( ƃ ), E. marginatus Ashmead ( Ƃ ), E. pachyscaphus Girault ( Ƃ ), E. platyhypenae Howard ( ƃ ), E. semimarginatus Girault ( Ƃ ), Heteroscapus ronnai Brèthes ( ƃ ). One synonym is established: Euplectrus walteri Schau $ is a junior synonym of E. testaceipes (Cameron). Brief image notes and host records are provided on the natural history of the wasps as well as the details of their morphology. Hosts are known for 74 Euplectrus species. es_CR
