Discovery of the genus Odontomutilla Ashmead, 1899 (Hymenoptera: Mutillidae) in Myanmar with description of a new species

Number: 476, Pages: 1 - 7

Odontomutilla listopadovi sp. n. is described and illustrated from Myanmar (Mandalay Region). A female of new species (male unknown) strikingly differs from congeners by having two golden spots located transversely in the basal half of second metasomal tergum (lacking such spots or having 1(3) spots in other species of the genus). The genus Odontomutilla Ashmead, 1899 is newly recorded from Myanmar. Three wrongly recorded by me from Myanmar species: Krombei­nidia margheritae (Hammer, 1962), Trogaspidia fimbriata Hammer, 1962, and Odontomutilla familiaris trimaculata Hammer, 1962, described by K. Hammer from Margherita (India: Assam), are excluded from Myanmar fauna.
