Abstract

 In this study, taxonomic and faunistic data on Euphorinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) subfamily which can be used as a biological control agent of plant pest insects (especially Coleoptera, Lepidoptera and Hemiptera) were given. In addition to the Turkish and worldwide distributional data of 33 species, and two genera namely, Neoneurus Haliday and Ecclitura Kokujev were given as new records from Turkey. Moreover, ten species [Leiophron (Peristenus) reclinator (Ruthe), Meteorus graciliventris Muesebeck, M. micropterus (Haliday), Elasmosoma calcaratum Tobias, Neoneurus auctus (Thomson), Ecclitura primoris Kokujev, P. (M.) apiophaga (Loan), P. (M.) moldavicus (Tobias), P. (M.) retusus Thomson, Streblocera (Streblocera) antennata Jakimavicius] which have not previously found in Turkey and those are new records for the Turkish fauna. Zoogeographical remarks and chorotype information for each taxon were given. By this contribution, the number of the Euphorinae species increased to 81 in Turkey.
