Tereshkin A.M. 2011. Illustrated key to the genera of the subtribe Amblytelina of Palaearctic (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae, Ichneumoninae, Ichneumonini). Linzer biol. Beitr., 43,1: 597-711 (Full text with color Plates).


Detailed descriptions of 18 species and 16 Amblytelina genera of Palaearctic are presented in this article. New taxa Limerodops violentus nov.sp., Triptognathops gobiensis nov.sp. and Achaiusoides epistomalis nov.gen. et nov.sp. are described. All considered taxa are illustrated by standard color tables including a total drawing of species and most meaningful in the taxonomy of the group parts of the body (head in two foreshortenings, propodeum and 1-2 segments of abdomen), executed in accordance with a unified scheme. Additional drawings of other structures characterizing taxon of certain rank are presented as needed. Thus, a graphic representation corresponds to the textual description of each taxonomic character. Amblytelina taxonomic characters used for definition of generic structure of the group are specified. Basing on this, conclusion on the possibility of usage of certain taxonomic characters and their combination to identify subtribal belonging were made. The article is illustrated with 179 drawings including 77 black and white drawings, illustrating morphology peculiarities of different systematic groups, and 102 colored drawings tabulated in 17 tables, illustrating morphological peculiarities of taxa under consideration. For genera of Amblytelina of Forest Zone of Eastern Europe the data about biotopical distribution and dynamic of seasonal activity are adduced. Data about hosts of separate species, hibernation of females on imaginal stage, based on critical analysis of literature data and original observations are presented.
