Psyttalia dexter (Silvestri, 1913)

Aside from the information provided by Silvestri in his original description (Silvestri 1913, 1914), and the subsequent transfer to the genus Psyttalia (see Wharton 1997), nothing is known about this species (see summary in Wharton and Gilstrap 1983 and comments under Psyttalia concolor).

Psyttalia dexter was reared by Silvestri in Senegal, from fruits of Asclepiadaceae infested with Dacus longistylus Wiedemann.
