A checklist of 1246 extant, described species, classified in 346 genera in 18 families of Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera) are reported from Canada, Alaska (USA) and Greenland (Denmark) based on examined specimens and published records up to December 31, 2020. Of the reported species, 1214 (in 345 genera in 18 families) are listed from Canada, 113 (in 58 genera in 10 families) from Alaska, and 26 (in 22 genera in 4 families) from Greenland. The list includes 235 new species records and 53 new generic records for Canada (no new family records). Forty-one new species records, 22 new generic records and the families Chalcididae and Eurytomidae are newly reported for Alaska. No new records were found for Greenland. Two species (in one genus) of Mymarommatoidea are reported from Canada. For each species in Canada, distribution is tabulated by province or territory, except the province of Newfoundland and Labrador is divided into the island of Newfoundland and the region of Labrador. The inclusion of known species from Alaska and Greenland results in the first comprehensive distributional checklist for the entire northern part of the Nearctic region. A brief review of the history of cataloguing Chalcidoidea in North America and a comparison of this checklist with four published checklists from the Palaearctic region is provided.


Microhymenoptera, Nearctic region, northern North America, species distributions


The superfamily Chalcidoidea is one of the most diverse groups of organisms on the planet (Figs 213). More than 22,700 species are described (Huber 2017), but Heraty et al. (2013) estimated that there might be up to 500,000 species worldwide. Most chalcidoids, for which the biology is known, are parasitoids, having been reared from a wide variety (12 orders) of Insecta, and also 2 orders of Arachnida and the family Anguinidae (Nematoda) (Gibson 1993). A few are predators and some are phytophagous. For more comprehensive information on the biology of Chalcidoidea see, e.g., Clausen (1940), Askew (1971), Bendel-Janssen (1977), Gordh (1979a), Gauld and Bolton (1988), Hanson and Gauld (1995), Noyes (2019). In addition to Chalcidoidea, the small superfamily Mymarommatoidea is also included in this paper because it is generally considered to be the sister group to Chalcidoidea (Gibson et al. 2007; Huber et al. 2008; Heraty et al. 2013). The biology of Mymarommatoidea is unknown, except that one has been reared from a bracket fungus and most are collected in shady, moist areas such as deciduous forests (Huber et al. 2008).

The first published cataloguing efforts for Chalcidoidea of the Nearctic region began with Peck (1951), with supplements by Burks (1958, 1967b). Peck (1963) catalogued the literature for each species up to and including 1958. The families comprising the Chalcidoidea section in Krombein et al. (1979) were catalogued by B. Burks, G. Gordh, and E. Grissell, former chalcidologists at United States National Museum of Natural History, Washington, DC (USNM), and included the relevant taxonomic literature to the end of 1972 or 1976 depending on the family. These catalogues also included species and records from Greenland. In his acclaimed Universal Chalcidoidea Database (UCD) for world Chalcidoidea, Noyes (2019) included the data from these previous catalogues. His database is now the only comprehensive compilation of taxonomic, biological, distributional and literature source information for world Chalcidoidea for the past 40–50 years, though it has not been updated since March 2019. Among other searches, it can be used to generate numbers and lists of Chalcidoidea names for any biogeographical region or country, and political subdivision within larger countries. Building on the information contained in the UCD, it is the purpose of this paper to provide the first checklist of the Chalcidoidea and Mymarommatoidea of Canada, Alaska and Greenland incorporating previously published, substantiated records as well as new records based on authoritatively identified specimens.


Sources of data

All records are substantiated by evidence, either collection- or literature-based. The vast majority of records in this checklist are based on specimens in the Canadian National Collection of Insects, Arachnids and Nematodes, Ottawa (CNC). Additional distributional records, for which specimens could not be examined, were obtained by mining previous literature. Because of the relatively poor knowledge of Chalcidoidea, regional collections were generally not consulted because of the immense amount of work required to identify and curate most specimens in these collections. However, a few records were based on examination of specimens (or their photographs) deposited in other collections, as follows: Royal Alberta Museum, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (PMAE: M. Buck); Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Ontario, Canada (ROM: C. Darling); Royal Saskatchewan Museum, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada (RSKM: C. Sheffield), University of Alaska, Fairbanks, Alaska, USA (UAM: D. Sikes). Whereas most records are Canadian, records from Alaska (USA), Greenland (Denmark) and the 242 km2 French Overseas Collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon islands located 25 km from the southern coast of Newfoundland are also included so as to provide complete coverage of the northern part of the Nearctic region. Most of the Alaska species records (74 of 113) were based on specimens in collections (CNC and UAM). The remainder were literature records, primarily from the chapters in Krombein et al. (1979), which mostly catalogued specimens in the USNM. The Greenland records were taken almost exclusively from the relevant chapters in Böcher et al. (2015) with some records substantiated by specimens in the CNC. The single species recorded from Saint Pierre and Miquelon was obtained from the TAXREF database (Gargominy et al. 2020) managed by the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris, but specimens were not examined and this species is only discussed in the text, not included in Table 2. Because of relatively poor sampling of the chalcidoids of these last three regions, it is likely that the current survey is not as complete for them as it is for Canada. All records published up to December 31, 2020 were evaluated for the current checklist.

We exclude from the checklist the very few fossil species of Chalcidoidea described from Canadian Cretaceous amber; all are now classified in Mymaridae (Poinar and Huber 2011) and Rotoitidae (Gumovsky et al. 2018). Further, species introduced into Canada from other countries for biological control against introduced pests are included only if there is irrefutable evidence that they became established after release. Often, no follow up surveys were undertaken to determine if the species released had established and so their continued presence is unsubstantiated. Because there is no single compilation of intentionally released species, one must search for their names in the five volumes on biological control in Canada: McLeod et al. (1962), Kelleher et al. (1971), Kelleher and Hulme (1984), Mason and Huber (2002) and Mason and Gillespie (2012). At least 18 species are or were commercially produced in Canada (Mason and Huber 2002), 14 of which are included in the checklist. The other four species, Aphytis melinus DeBach, Eretmocerus californicus Howard, Metaphycus helvolus (Compere) and Trichogrammatoidea bactrae Nagaraja, occur in the southern states of USA or outside the Nearctic region on pests of crops not, or not extensively, grown commercially in Canada so are most unlikely to be found there. Some of the commercially produced species may establish more or less permanent populations in areas where they are released, often in large numbers at intervals (usually in greenhouses) or may occur naturally outside the facilities that produce them. We do not include any records in Table 2 that are solely known from websites such as iNaturalist, BugGuide or online databases of specimens in museums because for Chalcidoidea, examination of specimens with reference to authoritatively identified material is generally required. Finally, we only include described species, not undescribed taxa or specimens identified only to genus.

Presentation of data

Distributions of taxa are indicated using acronyms of 18, mostly political, regions of northern (mostly north of 45° latitude) North America. For practical purposes the province of Newfoundland and Labrador is divided into the island of Newfoundland and the region of Labrador on mainland Canada. The acronyms used for the regions are: CAN = Canada, AK = Alaska (USA), GL = Greenland, SPM = Saint Pierre and Miquelon. Within Canada, the regions are: AB = Alberta, BC = British Columbia, LB = Labrador, MB = Manitoba, NB = New Brunswick, NF = Newfoundland island, NS = Nova Scotia, NT = Northwest Territories, NU = Nunavut, ON = Ontario, PE = Prince Edward Island, QC = Quebec, SK = Saskatchewan, YT = Yukon Territory. All regions are shown in Fig. 1. The distributional data are presented in two ways. Table 1 is a summary of the numbers of described, recorded species of Chalcidoidea and Mymarommatoidea in Canada, Alaska and Greenland (not including Saint Pierre and Miquelon) totalled for each family for all 17 regions. Table 2 is the species checklist arranged alphabetically by family for the same 17 regions. It contains three types of distributional records: 1) a published record for which we have examined a specimen; 2) a new (unpublished) record for which we have examined a specimen; and 3) a published record for which we have not examined a specimen, but is well-substantiated (see Assessing credibility of records section in Bennett 2021a). The different types of records are indicated by different fonts and colours in Table 2 (see Table heading). The absence of a provincial or territorial acronym for a species recorded from Canada indicates that the taxon was recorded from Canada but no province was specified. Literature references (shown in the far right column of Table 2) are only noted for previously published records for which no specimens were examined. Authors’ names that have been spelled in different ways, such as with or without diacritic marks, are spelled in only one way for consistency, for example, Förster, not Foerster. Literature references for published records for which specimens were examined are not provided as this would dramatically increase the size of the study and make it practically impossible to present the distributional data in a table format. We do provide an extensive, but by no means comprehensive, list of references for higher taxa, e.g., revisions of genera and regional checklists, which are cited directly under the higher taxon names in Table 2. Our list is not a catalogue so synonyms and homonyms are generally excluded; these can be found in UCD. In addition to the published checklist, the data presented in Table 2 have been added to Canadensys ( and are also registered on GBIF (Bennett 2021b).


The family classification in Chalcidoidea has been extremely volatile, varying from 1 to 23 recognized families (see Grissell and Schauff 1997), with changes even in the last few years and more changes likely in the future. We mainly follow the family classification in Heraty et al. (2013) in which 22 families were recognized, except we also recognize the family Megastigmidae, which was raised from subfamily status within Torymidae by Janšta et al. (2018). Five extant families, the Agaonidae, Cynipencyrtidae, Eriaporidae, Rotoitidae, and Tanaostigmatidae do not occur in northern North America. Species of Agaonidae are associated exclusively with figs (Ficus spp.), which do not naturally occur in Canada, Cynipencyrtidae consists of one genus and species in Asia, Eriaporidae occur only in the Old World, the two described species of Rotoitidae occur only in Chile and New Zealand, and species of Tanaostigmatidae occur in the New World only as far north as the southern states of USA.

Results and discussion

A total of 1246 described, extant species of Chalcidoidea in 346 genera in 18 families are listed for Canada, Alaska and Greenland (Tables 1 and 2). Of these, 1214 species, classified in 345 genera in 18 families, are listed from Canada. To place the current number of species in perspective, it represents a 149% increase from the 500 species reported in Danks (1979). In terms of relative species richness within Hymenoptera, Chalcidoidea species comprise 13.5% of the 9250 species recorded in northern North America and 13.6% of the 8933 recorded in Canada (Bennett 2021a). Yet in comparison to other areas of the world the number of Chalcidoidea is relatively low. Gijswijt (2003) recorded 1085 species of Chalcidoidea for The Netherlands, Weber et al. (2018) 1964 species (and likely about 380 more) for Germany, Dale-Skey et al. (2016) 1754 species for Great Britain and Ireland, and Belokobylskij et al. (2019) 2307 species for Russia, other countries that have recently published checklists for Chalcidoidea. Britain and Ireland together (313,100 km2) are only about 3.2% the size of Canada (9.985 million km2), but despite this, the 1754 species recorded from there is almost 1.5 times greater than all the species we record from Canada. Canada and Russia have a much greater variety of ecozones and habitats than does Britain and Ireland, which have little or no tundra, temperate rain forest, grassland or semi-desert. While the colder climate over much of Canada contributes to the apparently depauperate fauna this is not the main reason. Lack of collecting as well as lack of study of what has been collected, in groups other than those of research interest to the few taxonomists who study Chalcidoidea in Canada, is probably the main factor contributing to poor knowledge of species and their distributions.

Based on sequencing of the DNA barcode region of cytochrome oxidase I (COI) and using the Barcode Index Number (BIN) criterion of Ratnasingham and Hebert (2013) that 2% sequence divergence is indicative of species differences, Bennett et al. (2019) estimated that there are 3301 species of Chalcidoidea from Canada in the Barcode of Life Data System (BOLD) database (Ratnasingham and Hebert 2007). This represents 2.7 times the number of recorded named species of Chalcidoidea in Canada. These BINs have not yet been reconciled against the names in the checklist so the percent congruence is unknown, but it illustrates that there are many unrecorded species. The comparison of COI sequences from unidentified specimens against those of named species in such databases as BOLD will certainly help to reveal yet more species to add to the checklist, e.g., Anastatus reduvii (Howard) (Eupelmidae), a recent, accidentally introduced parasitoid of the major pest Halyomorpha halys Stål (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) (Gariepy and Talamas 2019).

Compared to Canada, the number of species of Chalcidoidea recorded from Alaska and Greenland is far lower (113 species in 58 genera in 10 families from Alaska and 26 described species in 22 genera in 4 families from Greenland) (Tables 1, 2). The summary of the entomofauna of Greenland (Böcher et al. 2015) included records from six chalcidoid families, but specimens of Aphelinidae and Trichogrammatidae were only identified to genus, and so are not included in our checklist. Relative to Canada, the smaller land masses and more northerly latitudes of Alaska and Greenland definitely contribute to lower species richness, but it is also probable that the numbers are lower than expected because of relatively poor sampling in Alaska and Greenland (as well as in the three Canadian territories, NT, NU and YT). In addition, one species of Chalcidoidea, Pteromalus elevatus (Walker, 1834) (Pteromalidae) has been recorded from the French Overseas Collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon Islands (Gargominy et al. 2020). This record is derived from an online database and specimens have not been examined, but this species has been recorded previously from NB, NS and NL (Hoebeke and Wheeler 1996).

Table 2.

Checklist of species of Chalcidoidea and Mymarommatoidea of Canada, Alaska and Greenland. See Methods for acronyms used for the regions. Distributional acronyms in black regular font are previously published and supported by an examined specimen. Red, boldface records are new (unpublished) records supported by an examined specimen. All specimens supporting boldfaced records are deposited in the CNC except if a depository acronym is noted in the far right column. Blue, italicized records are previously published but not validated by an examined specimen. Literature references are only noted for italicized records. For species with multiple italicized records based on multiple references, the references are listed in order from left to right, corresponding with the distributional records depicted from left to right, unless otherwise noted. An asterisk (*) denotes a record from Newfoundland for which it is uncertain whether it was from the island of Newfoundland or mainland Labrador.
