Abstract

The 120 known species of Crabronidae represent a substantial component of the aculeate Hymenoptera of Trinidad, West Indies (Starr and Hook 2003). This worldwide family of solitary wasps is divided into eight sub- families (Pulawski 2006), of which four are recorded from Trinidad. This note reports the first record of a fifth subfamily, Astatinae, for the Trinidad fauna.
