Abstract

The main objective of this study was to analyze faunistical, ecological, zoogeographical distribution and hosts data of specimens belonging to the subfamily Tryphoninae Shuckard,1840 (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae). The specimens were collected from different provinces in Turkey between March 1990 and October 2016. A total of 1463 specimens were analyzed, of which were 95 species, 26 genera, 13 subgenere and 6 tribus. Most of the samples were collected after the year 2000 and were considered as new records. Among them, Netelia (Paropheltes) beschkovi Kolarov, 1994 and Parablastus anatolicus Gürbüz & Kolarov, 2005 from Turkey were described and illustrated first time. Also these species are endemic for Turkey. For each species details of composition, biogeographical and zooogeographical data, altitudinal distribution, seasonal dynamics, individual diversity, available host data, plants visited by adults and the first record of the species from Turkey are summarised.
