Description of a new species of Leiophron Nees (Hymenoptera: Braconidae:Euphorinae) from India

Mohammad Shamim

A new species of the braconid genus, viz., Leiophron sharifi Shamim sp. nov. is described and illustrated from India. The new species unambiguously distinguished from Leiophron (Leiophron) achterbergi Shamim et al. [16] from India. However, it differs in having length of malar space 1.4 times basal width of mandible, propodeum reticulate- rugose, spiracles at behind middle of first metasomal tergite, length of pterostigma 3 times its width and length of vein 1__R1 0.28 times length of pterostigma.
