          Abstract

          In this publication, the sixth of a projected series revising the Afrotropical species of the genus Quartinia Ed. André, 1884 (Hymenoptera: Vespidae: Masarinae), 11 species (8 with complete venation and 3 with incomplete venation) are dealt with.Two new species, carpenteri and latigena are described, as are the hitherto unknown males of artemus Richards and luteomandibulata Gess.Quartinia atlantica Gess 2011, for which only the female was known, is sunk into synonymy with Q. namaquensis Gess 2007, for which only the male was known, females previously erroneously ascribed to the latter (Gess 2011a) being those of Q. conchicola Gess 2007.Augmented collecting data and, in most instances, flower visiting records are given for arenaria Gess, artemis Richards, bonaespei Gess, luteomandibulata Gess, namaqua Gess, namaquensis Gess, niveopicta von Schulthess, propinqua von Schulthess and vagepunctata von Schulthess.

            The genus Quartinia Ed. André, 1884 (Hymenoptera, Vespidae, Masarinae) in Southern Africa. Part IV. New and little known species with complete venation

            In this publication, the fourth of a projected series revising the Afrotropical species of the genus Quartinia Ed. André, 1884 (Hymenoptera: Vespidae: Masarinae), 14 species with complete venation are dealt with. Ten new species are described: arenaria, atlantica and luteomandibulata from the seaboard of the Western Cape of South Africa, namibensis from south-western Namibia and carolinae, frontalis, scutellaris, setaria, setositerminalis and upingtonensis from the Northern Cape of South Africa. The hitherto unknown female of namaquensis Gess and the males of persephone Richards and vagepunctata Richards are described. The identity of the male of parcepunctata Richards as described by Richards is confirmed. A key to facilitate the separation of the sympatric and generally similar looking frontalis, scutellaris, setositerminalis and vagepunctata is given. Extensive collection data pertaining to most of the species contribute to the knowledge of their distribution and floral associations.

              The genus Quartinia Ed. André, 1884 (Hymenoptera, Vespidae, Masarinae) in Southern Africa. Part V. New and little known species with incomplete venation

              In this publication, the fifth of a projected series revising the Afrotropical species of the genus Quartinia Ed. André, 1884 (Hymenoptera: Vespidae: Masarinae), six species with incomplete venation are dealt with. Two new species are described, aenea from southern Namibia and aerosa from the Northern Cape of South Africa. These two species with greenish-metallic or broze-metallic head and mesosoma are compared with the known and similar looking helichrysi (Richards) and metallescens von Schulthess. Two further known species are dealt with, namely capensis Kohl and senecionis (Richards). Extensive collection data pertaining to most of the species contribute to the knowledge of their distribution and floral associations./
