Abstract

A key to eight Turkish subgenera of Bracon is provided. Five species of subgenus Osculobracon are reported from Turkey based on literature records and specimens collected from mainly Central and East Anatolia. A key to five species of Osculobracon Papp from Turkey is given, together with illustrations of important taxonomic characters. Bracon (Glabrobracon) bilgini and Bracon (Glabrobracon) erzurumiensis are transferred to subgenus Osculobracon in view of the weakly sclerotized of the third tergite and curved claws of all fifth tarsomeres. New distributional records for five species of Osculobracon are reported for Turkey.
