Abstract: The validity of Alloxysta fulviceps (Curtis, 1838) and its synonymies have been examined. After studying the type series and the taxonomic history of this species, we conclude that the lectotype was wrongly designated. A new lectotype is designated and A. fulviceps is synonymised with A. victrix (Westwood, 1833).

Keywords: Hymenoptera, Figitidae, Charapinae, Alloxysta, fulviceps
