Apanteles galleriae Wilkinson, 1932 http://species-id.net/wiki/Apanteles_galleriae Apanteles galleriae Wilkinson, 1932: 139. Variety locality. FRANCE, Montpellier (Shenefelt 1972: 516). Holotype. , NMNH (not N: clearly outwards, inclined towards fore wing apex. Shape of junction examined). Description. Whitfield et al. (2001) supplied a complete description and several black and white illustrations. Molecular data. Sequences in BOLD: 16, barcode compliant sequences: 12, haplotypes: two (but see Comments below). Biology/ecology. Solitary, parasitoid of early-instar larva of wax moths and emerges to spin its white cocoon and pupate effectively just before the host larva reaches complete size (Whitfield et fpsyg.2015.00334 al. 2001).
