Abstract

The species of Eurytoma (a genus that includes phytophagous species and others that are parasitoids of other insects) described or recorded from West Africa by J. Risbec are revised. Several new species are described and taxonomic changes proposed. A key to the species of Eurytoma (and related genera of eurytomids) in Risbec's collection is provided.
