Abstract:   (1240 Views)
Xoridinae is a rather small subfamily of Ichneumonidae (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonoidea) known as parasitoids of xylophagous insects with most species classified in the genus Xorides Latreille, 1809. During a survey on the diversity of Ichneumonidae in Darab damask rose plain (Fars province, Iran), two species of this subfamily were collected using Malaise traps in 2019, and identified, i.e. Xorides corcyrensis (Kriechbaumer, 1894) and X. annulator (Fabricius, 1804). The second species is newly recorded from Iran. Illustrated taxonomic notes on the newly recorded species as well as an updated checklist and a key to the known species of this subfamily in Iran are provided.
