Subfamily Anomaloninae

Anomalonines have slender bodies with the thorax generally coarsely punctate and the areolet of the forewing absent. Their faces are usually at least in part yellow. Anomaloninae characteristically fly with antennae forward, the gaster slightly raised, and back legs outstretched. Tasmanian species are medium to large-sized. Female Trichomma have noticeably hairy eyes and the ovipositor at near to, or around, the length of the hind tibiae. In other genera the ovipositor is around half the length. All Tasmanian species are internal parasites of lepidopterous larvae including some orchard pests.

Composed of seven Australian genera.
