Abstract:   (672 Views)
In the present work, Euurobracon cephalotes cephalotes (Smith, 1858) is recorded for the first time from India. A new state record of Euurobracon triplagiata (Cameron, 1900) from Madhya Pradesh is also documented. This species was previously known in the Indian states of Meghalaya, Tamil Nadu, and Uttar Pradesh. A distributional checklist of the world species of Euurobracon Ashmead is also provided.
