From a study on parasitoid-host interactions within the Hymenoptera, carried out in Soria (Spain) since 1999, we collected data on 2 species of Chrysididae and 2 species of Mutillidae that act as parasitoids of a species of Crabronidae.
The descriptions are based on 2 mature larva (Bembix bidentata) and 1 mature larva (one each of the species of Chrysididae and Mutillidae).
The description of the mature larvae of 2 Chrysidini (1 of them belonging to a genus whose final larval stage morphology was unknown), provides new information that underscores the importance of larval characters when establishing the phylogenetic relationships of the Chrysididae.
The family Chrysididae is defined by displaying the labrum with sensilla, and a well developed peritreme.
