Abstract

The fauna of Charmontinae, Ichneutinae, Macrocentrinae and Orgilinae (Hymenoptera, Braconidae) of Iran is reviewed and the data on their host associations are summarized. Thirty-four species belonging to 7 genera are listed. Macrocentrus nidulator (Nees, 1834) (Macrocentrinae) and Orgilus leptocephalus (Hartig, 1838) (Orgilinae) are new country records while Orgilus jennieae Marsh, 1979 (Orgilinae) is considered here a doubtful record and has been excluded from the fauna of Iran. The distribution of all species in the different provinces of Iran and their overall distribution are also provided.
