Abstract:   (1645 Views)
The Indian species of Entedon Dalman (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae: Entedoninae) are reviewed. The review includes seven species, of which E. shivalikensis Majeed & Jamali sp. nov., E. dehradunensis Majeed & Jamali sp. nov. are described  and illustrated. Entedon thoubalensis (Chisti & Shafee, 1983), E. gunturensis (Shafee & Rizvi, 1985), and E. longicorpus (Khan & Shafee, 1982) are redescibed and diagnostic characters are presented for two species: E. punctiscapus Thomson, 1878, E. pempheridis Ferrière, 1930. An identification key to Indian species of the genus Entedon is also provided.
