Latest version published by Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona on Aug 26, 2020 Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona

A list of Chalcidoid wasps collected from the region of Biskra in the south east of Algeria in 2017 is provided. The list is comprised of 35 individuals classified into 17 species belonging to eight families. Five genera are reported for the first time from Algeria. Aphelinus asychis walker, 1839 (Chalcidoidea, Aphelinidae) and Pachyneuron groenlandicum Holmgren, 1872 (Chalcidoidea, Pteromalidae) are new records from Algeria. Biological data and geographical distributions of each species are mentioned.

Geographic Coverage

The study area is located in the Saharan bioclimatic zone, where the winter is temperate and summers are hot and dry (fig. 1). The climatic conditions of the region favour a diversified agricultural practice. Samples were collected from various locations and habitats: Ain Naga (fields producing aromatic and medicinal plants), Tolga (palm groves), Ain Naga (Horaya) (vegetable cultivation) and El Outaya (olive groves).

Sampling Methods

This faunistic study was based on samples of Chalcidoids collected between December 2016 and August 2017. Sampling was performed by the main author using yellow pan traps and malaise traps. The samples were preserved in 70% ethanol until their transfer to the laboratory.
