Abstract: A neotype for Anaphes flavipes (Foerster, 1841) (Hymenoptera: Mymaridae), a biological control agent of Oulema melanopus (Linnaeus, 1758) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), is designated. The extensive literature on A. fl avipes is compiled and the morphological variability of selected morphological structures of numerous reared specimens from across its presently known geographic range (mainly eastern Nearctic and western Palearctic) is described. Anaphes fl avipes is compared with what appears to be morphologically and biologically the most similar species, A. nipponicus Kuwayama, 1932, from Japan, which is briefl y redescribed. Anaphes auripes Walker, 1846, syn. nov., is placed in synonymy under A. fl avipes. The following new country and state records for A. fl avipes are provided: Czech Republic, Ukraine, Canada (Nova Scotia), USA (Virginia).
Key words: Hymenoptera, Mymaridae, Anaphes flavipes, Anaphes nipponicus, biological control, neotype, morphological variability, new synonym, redescription, Holarctic Region
