New synonyms of specific and generic names in the family Chrysididae (Hymenoptera)

P. Rosa

Abstract. The type material of two Chrysididae genera described by Yu. Tarbinsky from Central Asia was examined. New synonyms are proposed: Pseudochrysis Semenov, 1891 = Arnoldia Tarbinsky, 2004, syn. nov.; Spinolia Dahlbom, 1854 = Pseudochrysura Tarbinsky, 2004, syn. nov.; Pseudochrysis neglecta (Shuckard, 1837) = Arnoldia seraphimi Tarbinsky, 2004, syn. nov.; Spinolia rusalka (Semenov, 1901) = Pseudochrysura zonsteini Tarbinsky, 2004, syn. nov.
Key words: Central Asia, Palaearctic region, cuckoo wasps, Chrysidinae, new synonymy
