Tersilochinae?? > Barycnemis sp. (?)

Postby Lennart Bendixen on 18 Dec 2016, 10:15

Hello everyone,

now this is a real riddle for me – first I thought it would be Tersilochinae, but in the Khalaim / Yurtcan 2009 key to genera it is written that Tersilochinae have a body length from 3 to only 7 mm. I have no idea what else it could be. Who can help?

Thanks in advance. Lennart

Length about 10 mm. 2016-09-21, Northern Germany, Mohrkirch, house wall (northside)

I give this one a second chance. Looks quite conspicuous, so maybe someone can tell me the subfamily at least?

Maybe Barycnemis?
Barycnemis gravipes here for example
Townes mentions "front wing 2.3 to 6.5 mm" for this genus, and several features seem to fit with his description.

Great hint, many thanks.

Could be Barycnemis very well.

Khalaim 2004 writes for B. gravipes, B. angustipennis, B. guttulator "Antenna with 33-39 segments", but my specimen and the one you contributed appear to have 42 or 43 segments. Nevertheless, I think it is one of these three spp., because they seem to be the only ones with such a strongly upcurved ovipositor and that many antenna segments, but it would be hard to say which one.
