Anagyrus recognition is quite challenging, particularly because of common intraspecific variation in coloration of funicle
segments of the female antenna, a character that is used extensively in taxonomic keys.
First segment of funicle
(F1) shorter than pedicel and about 2 times as long as wide.
The MPS I was wider than the MPS II; almost all MPS I were attached to the surfaces of the funicle
and the clava, and only the tips of MPS I sensilla were detached with the surfaces of their areas of distribution; the tip was round, blunt and thick with a smooth surface, and varied from 47.5-57.5 [micro]m and 7.5-5 [micro]m in length and width, respectively.
