Abstract

The subfamily Cheloninae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) from Egypt is revised. A total of 29 species in three genera (AscogasterWesmael, 1835; ChelonusPanzer, 1806; and PhanerotomaWesmael, 1838) and two tribes (Chelonini and Phanerotomini) are recorded. Nine species are newly recorded for the Egyptian fauna: Chelonus elaeaphilusSilvestri, 1908; C. versatilis (Wilkinson, 1932); Phanerotoma (Bracotritoma) acaravan Achterberg, 1990; P. (B.) graciloidesvan Achterberg, 1990; P. (B.) permixtellaeFischer, 1968a; P. (P.) diversa (Walker, 1874); P. (P.) fractaKokujev, 1903; P. (B.) minutaKokujev, 1903; and P. (P.) robustaZettel, 1988. Two new species are described: P. (B.) flavivenasp. nov. and P. (P.) sinaiticasp. nov. The male of P. acaravan Achterberg, 1990 is reported for the first time in the present study. A key to the Egyptian species of Cheloninae is provided.
