Abstract

Present study was conducted in the Northeast Anatolian Region of Turkey during 1998-2006. Totally 34 Brachistinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) species were recorded in 5 genera. Of which, 31 species were new records for the Turkish fauna, among them three species, Schizoprymnus glabberimus Snoflák, 1952, S. longiseta (Schaeffer, 1838) and S. luteipalpis (Snoflák, 1952) were new to  Eurasian continent as well. For known species new distribution areas were added. Furthermore, Schizoprymnus arcuatus Tobias, 1986, S. brevicornis Herrich-Schaeffer, 1838, S. nigripes (Nees von Esenbeck 1813), S. telengai Tobias, 1976 and S. tentalus were obtained from the larvae of Curculio rubidus Gyll., Acentrus histrio (Fald.), and Titanomalia komaroffi (Faust) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) respectively. The hosts of S. arcuatus, S. nigripes and S. tentalus were obtained for the first time.
