Abstract

The genus Trisoleniella Rohwer and Fagan is a new synonym of Eumayria Ashmead. A redescription of Eumayria and a key to species are given. Species included in Eumayria are: E. bignelli (Dalla Torre and Kieffer), n. comb.; E. brevicornis (Beutenmueller), n. comb.; E. enigma (Weld), n. comb.; E. floridana Ashmead; and E. saltata (Ashmead), n. comb. Eumayria enigma is probably the unisexual generation of E. floridana. Two species previously placed in Eumayria are transferred to other genera: E. longipennis (Ashmead) to Andricus (n. comb.) and E. invisa (Weld) to Eumayriella (n. comb.). Eumayriella, n. gen., is described to include E. archboldi, n. sp., and E. invisa, and it is compared to the closely related genus Eumayria.
