Westwoodiini Townes, 1970

The tribe Westwoodiini was initially proposed by Townes (1970) for a group of distinctive Australian genera. Gauld (1984) showed that this group shared several features with Scolobatini, such as the antennal tyloid, and combined the two. He also cleared up some of the confusion resulting from previous treatments of the Australian genera. Zhaurova and Wharton (2009) resurrected Westwoodiini and provided two diagnostic features: Fore wing vein Rs+2r originates at proximal end of pterostigma; and cerci in lateral view attached ventrad middle of posterior aspect of metasoma.
