In the present study, a total of 28 braconid species (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) in 19 genera and nine subfamilies, Agathidinae (two species, two genera), Alysiinae (three species, three genera), Brachistinae (four species, two genera), Braconinae (nine species, four genera), Cheloninae (three species, two genera), Euphorinae (one species), Macrocentrinae (one species), Microgastrinae (two species, one genus) and Opiinae (three species, three genera) were reared from 33 host species belonging to 18 families in the orders Coleoptera, Diptera, Hymenoptera and Lepidoptera. Seven braconid species are reported here as new for the Iranian fauna. Based on data available, eight new host records are also reported: Bacterocera sp. (Diptera: Tephritidae) for Utetes truncatus; Coleophora serratella (Linnaeus, 1761) (Lepidoptera: Coleophoridae) for Agathis rufipalpis; Megaselia minuta (Aldrish, 1892) (Diptera: Phoridae) for Dinotrema concolor; Acanthocinus elegans Ganglbauer, 1884 (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) for Vipio longicauda; Cydia pomonella (Linnaeus, 1758) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) for Phanerotoma tritoma; Psylliodes cuprea (Koch, 1803) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) for Townesilitus aemulus; Agromyza ambigua Fallén, 1823 (Diptera: Agromyzidae) for Xenobius macrocerus; and Phytomyza horticola Goureau, 1851 for Chorebus flavipes.
