Gelinae

Cryptinae, Gelinae, Phygadeuontinae and Hemitelinae are names used for a subfamily of the ichneumon wasp family of insects. One of the first three is commonly found today, according to each individual author's preferences. "Cryptinae" was formally proposed by the ICZN, but "Phygadeuontinae" may be the technically valid name. "Gelinae" was used by H.T. Townes in his comprehensive but idiosyncratic rewiew. A 5-sided areolet, a short sternaulus, and a puffy face with a convex clypeus are diagnostic characters for most members of this large subfamily.
