          Abstract

          The genus Philoplitis Nixon is revised. Three new species, P. masneri Fernández-Triana & Goulet, sp. n., P. punctatus Fernández-Triana & Goulet, sp. n., and P. striatus Fernández-Triana & Goulet, sp. n. are described, and a key is provided to the World species. The genus, previously known only from the Oriental region, is here recorded from the Afrotropical region. Evidence suggests that its included species are broadly found in rainforest areas of the Old World tropics. Clarification and suggestions about some character states previously used with Philoplitis within the context of Microgastrinae phylogenetic studies are also provided.
