Abstractrecords of three species of Endasys Foerster, 1869 (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae). Acta Zoologica Mexicana (n.s.), 30(3): 723-726. ABSTRACT. Endasys is a genus of Ichneumonidae distributed in the North Hemisphere with 123 spe- cies. Eleven species have been recorded previously in Mexico. Three new records are reported here: E. santacruzensis Luhman, 1990, E. subclavatus (Say, 1835), and E. tyloidiphorus Luhman, 1990. Cur- rently 14 species of Endasys are known in Mexico.

Abstract: Ichneumonids are parasitoid wasps with importance in the biological control of insect pests and constitute one of the most diverse families of Hymenoptera. The objective of this research was to know the diversity of Ichneumonidae and its relationship with temperature and rainfall in one locality of Jaumave, Tamaulipas, Mexico, during one year. One Malaise tramp was operated at 1,450 m in a dry forest with Pinus nelsonii, P. cembroides and Juniperus flaccida, with a small source of water near it. The number of ichneumonids collected was 1,115. Cryptinae was the subfamily best represented in number of genera and species, Pimpla the genus more abundant and Pachysomoides stupidus the species with more individuals. High diversity of this family was found in the studied locality. High correlation was found between Ichneumonidae and temperature, and a moderate correlation with rainfall. Three species are new records for Mexico and 5 for Tamaulipas, therefore 1,298 species are known in the country. This research contributes to the knowledge of Ichneumonidae in dry areas from Mexico.

Abstract: Resumen Los icneumonidos son avispas parasitoides de importancia en el control biologico de insectos plaga y constituyen una de las familias deHymenoptera con mayor diversidad.

Serecolectaron 1,115 icneumonidos, de los cuales la subfamilia Cryptinae fue la mejor representada en numero de generos y especies, siendo Pimpla el genero mas abundante y Pachysomoides stupidus la especie con mas individuos. Se encontro una gran diversidad de ejemplares correspondientesa la familia estudiada. La temperatura presento una correlacion alta con la diversidad de Ichneumonidae, la precipitacion pluvial una correlacionmoderada. Tres especies son nuevos registros para Mexico y 5 especies para Tamaulipas, por lo que se conocen 1,298 especies de Ichneumonidaepara el pais.
