Platygastroidea (platygastrid and scelionid wasps)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Hymenopteran superfamily Platygastroidea (sometimes incorrectly spelled Platygasteroidea) has, in the past, often been treated as a lineage within the superfamily Proctotrupoidea, but most classifications since 1977 have recognized it as an independent group, composed of two families, the Platygastridae and the Scelionidae, with a combined diversity of some 4000 described species.
