Abstract
Male genitalia of 13 members of the mymarid wasp genus Anagrus have been st udied: Anagrus (Anagrella) mymaricornis (Bakkendorf), Anagrus (Paranagrus) unilinearis Soyka, A. (Anagrus) ustulatus Haliday, A. (A.) erythroneurae Tr japitzin and Chiappini, A. (A.) atomus (Linnaeus), A. (A.) aegyptiacus Soyk a, A. (A.) vilis Donev, A. (A.) sensillatus Viggiani and Jesu, A. (A.) brev iphragma Soyka, A. (A.) incarnatus Haliday, A. (A.) obscurus Forster sensu Soyka, A. (A.) fennicus Soyka and A. (A.) avalae Soyka. Taxonomically signi ficant differences between subgenera and the atomus and incarnatus species- groups are described. The functional significance of various features, and in particular, the arrangment of sensilla are discussed.
