GARCIA-ANDRADE, Dianely J.; MORALES-MALDONADO, Emilio R.; OJEDA-BARRIOS, Dámaris L.  and  JABOCO-CUELLAR, Juan L.. A faunistic inventory of the family Evaniidae (Hymenoptera: Evanoidea) in the states of Yucatán and Quintana Roo, Mexico. Agrociencia [online]. 2018, vol.52, n.8, pp.1107-1120. ISSN 2521-9766.

In the world catalogue of Evaniidae, 435 species are recognized distributed in 20 genera. In Mexico, 14 species are registered distributed in four genera: Evania, Evaniella, Hyptia and Semaeomyia. The distribution records of Evaniidae include the states of Baja California Sur, Tabasco, Morelos and Veracruz. The objective of the present study was to make a faunistic inventory of the family Evaniidae in the states of Yucatán and Quintana Roo. The Evaniidae were collected with a Townes type Malaise trap. The sampling was carried out from 1993 to 1999 and 2006 to 2009, and the material was obtained from the traps every 15 d in 19 localities of Yucatán: Celestún, Conkal, Dzibilchaltún, Dzilam de Bravo, El Cuyo, El Palmar, Tabi, Kabah, Yalahau, Mérida, Mocochá, Put, Quintana Roo, Rancho Hobonil, Ría Lagartos, Sudzal Chico, Teya Pueblo, Tizimín, Xmatkuil, and two of Quintana Roo: Reserva El Edén y Vallehermoso.1,601 specimens of Evaniidae were collected, which were distributed in four genera (Evania, Evaniella, Hyptia, Semaeomyia) and 11 morphospecies. These specimens belong to a species close to Evania albofacialis Cameron, and they were obtained from four taxa of Hyptia reticulata of which the following were determined: H. ocellaria (Schletterer) and H. petiolata (Fabricius), plus two morphospecies related to Semaeomyia Bradley, 1908. The majority of species collected exhibited wide distribution in the states of Yucatán and Quintana Roo.
