Two new species of the genus Orthopelma (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Orthopelmatinae) from Caucasus and Tian-Shan

D.R. Kasparyan

Abstract. Two new Palearctic species of ichneumon-wasps, Orthopelma caucasicum sp. nov. and O. dodecameron sp. nov. are described from mountains of the Caucasus and Middle Asia. A key to the West-Palaearctic species is given. Two species-groups in Orthopelma are distinguished and characterised in the key.
Key words: Palaearctic, Caucasus, Middle Asia, Ichneumonidae, Orthopelmatinae, Orthopelma, new species, taxonomy
