Abstract

The Phylogeny of genus Vipio is re-investigated. Characters of moneilemae species group were added to data to decide the placement of the moneilemae species group in genus Vipio. Cladistic analysis were conducted which showed that genus Vipio is more closely related to genus Glyptomorpha Holmgren than to other glyptomorphine genera. The species moneilemae appeared as a sister group of lineage comprising Mesobracon, Angustibracon, Merinotus, Glydinobracon, Bathyaulax, Euvipio, Odeia, Rhytimorpha, Glyptomorpha and Vipio. In the second stage of analysis successive approximations to character weighting were employed which showed moneilemae species group as more closely related to genus Vipio than to other genera of tribe Glyptomorphini. The analysis showed that genus Victoroviella is more near to glyptomorphines than other tribes of Braconinae.
