Four new species Paranastatus Masi (Eupelmidae, Eupelminae)

Latest version published by ZooKeys on May 13, 2019 ZooKeys

Paranastatus Masi, 1917 (Eupelmidae, Eupelminae) was originally described based on two species from Seychelles: P. egregius and P. violaceus. Eady (1956) subsequently described P. nigriscutellatus and P. verticalis from Fiji. More recent collections from the South Pacific revealed new specimens of Paranastatus, including what appeared to be undescribed species. Four new species of Paranastatus were described: P. bellus Scallion, sp. n. and P. pilosus Scallion, sp. n. from Indonesia, and P. halko Scallion, sp. n. and P. parkeri Scallion, sp. n. from Fiji.
