Pseudomacrocorupha wagneri Muir, 1930 Argentina
Hosts: None reported.
Economic Importance: Probably limited.
This is the only described Saccharosydnine with a flattened head and broad frons - so far. I have seen specimens of undescribed species (or genera) within Saccharosynini with flattened head. The genitalia were illustrated by Muir (1930), but it appears that the genital microvial for the holotype is now empty.
This is the only reported specimen of this species of which I am aware; however, I have seen a series of specimens of this species from recent collections from Argentina, so the species is probably greatly underreported rather than extremely rare.
