Belongs within: Gorytini.

Gorytes is a genus of medium-sized to large wasps found in Eurasia, North America and Africa that provision their nests with leafhoppers (Auchenorrhyncha) (Bohart & Menke 1976).

Characters (from Bohart & Menke 1976): Medium-sized to fairly large wasps; inner eye margins converging below, often strongly; mandible usually with two inner subteeth; labrum inconspicuous; male flagellomeres often with tyli but last four articles not specially modified; pronotal collar rather thin, rounded, nearly even all across, not closely adherent to scutum; female foretarsal rake well developed, fore basitarsus with two long setae before apex; female arolia usually nearly equal in size; posterolateral oblique scutal carina present; prescutellar sulcus foveate; episternal sulcus when well impressed ending on scrobal sulcus which is continued forward in nearly a straight line to omaulus; acetabular carina incomplete or obscure; sternaulus complete or essentially so; forewing costal margin gently or sometimes strongly bowed out near base, media diverging before cu-a, stigma moderate, veinlet of submarginal cell II between recurrents about one-fourth posterior length of submarginal cell I; jugal lobe considerably larger than tegula, hindwing media generally diverging before cu-a but in some species at or a little beyond it; midtibia with two apical spurs; propodeal enclosure either extensively sculptured or longitudinally ridged, ridges sometimes confined to a frontal strip; spiracular groove present, usually distinct; gaster tapering toward base, sometimes nearly pedunculate; male with seven terga normally exposed, sterna without fimbriae, sternum VIII narrowly blade shaped, often minutely notched at apex; female pygidial plate variable, flat, usually long.
