Yes, this is undoubtedly an encyrtid, but it is not a Microterys. I would have called it an Epitetracnemus, but that genus was recently synonymized under Adelencyrtus. This might very well be the first record of the genus from Northern Europe (it has been recorded from Spain, Italy and China, plus the New World).

Thanks alot!

Epitetracnemus intersectus seems to exist in 6 records in Collection inventory of the Hymenoptera collection, ZMuc.dk: http://www.zmuc.dk/EntoWeb/collections-databaser/Hymenoptera/Encyrtidae%20all.htm
(Though it is not registrated in fauna-eu.org in Denmark: https://fauna-eu.org/cdm_dataportal/taxon/cf799f2d-2201-417c-807d-88b1e3727494 )

so perhaps it is not a new one?
Best regards, Ole

For distributional records, I rely upon the Universal Chalcidoidea Database (UCD), created by John Noyes and maintained by the British Museum. I believe this DB relies primarily upon their own records, plus whatever has been published in the literature. So if there are geographic records for a given species held at any given institution that have NOT been published, the UCD would not have included them. So the UCD does not present 100% coverage of ALL data concerning chalcidoids, but it is the best single-source reference for the group on a world-wide basis.
