John C. Luhman


Amphibulus Kriechbaumer (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae, Phygadeuontinae = Gelinae, Gelini) is revised world-wide. It is separated from its sister group genus Endasys Foerster by means of a key and a diagnosis. Keys are given to 3 species groups and 25 species, including European gracilis Kriechbaumer and fennicus Sawoniewicz. Mexican satageus (Cresson) is redescribed, and 22 species are newly described: africanus, auranticeps, aurarius, aureolus, bicolor, borealis, carinarum, dentatus, duodentatus, eurystomatus, flavipes, latioris, nigripes, orientalis, pentatylus, pilosus, pseudopustulae, pustulae, pyrrhoborealis, rugosus, salicis, and tetratylus. Thirty figures illustrate diagnostic characters.
