Members of the subfamily Charipinae (Hymenoptera: Cynipoidea: Figitidae) are morphologically characterized being very small wasp (0.8-2.0mm), with shiny and smooth body and with very few diagnostic features. This has led on a very big, chaotic and diverse subfamily. The taxonomical chaos of the subfamily Charipinae has been always a problem and an obstacle to identify correctly at species level. The limits between species are not always very clear; the main reason is that the first authors give special attention to size and coloration of specimens, forgetting important characters that are needed to distinguish between them. For these reasons, there are many taxonomic inconsistences and numerous synonymies that need to be tackled.
