Two New Species of the Genus Sycophila (Hymenoptera, Eurytomadae) from Yemen

Two new species of the genus Sycophila Walker from Yemen are described. Sycophila yemeni Zerova, sp. n. (type locality: Ta'izz, Yemen) is similar to Sycophila kestraneura (Masi) (Africa) but differs in shorter radial vein and longer gasteral petiolus in female. Sycophila setulosa Zerova, sp. n. (type locality: Ta'izz, Yemen) differs from all known Sycophila species in having the long bristles at the base of parastigma (upper side).
