Platyspathius picardi sp. nov., a new European species of the genus Platyspathius Viereck, 1911 (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Doryctinae)

S.A. Belokobylskij & C. Villemant

Abstract. A new Western Palaearctic species of the genus Platyspathius Viereck, 1911, P. picardi sp. nov. is described and illustrated. This species is the most similar to the Afrotropical P. clymene Nixon, 1941 and the Eastern Palaearctic P. hospitus Belokobylskij et Ku, 2001 with which it is compared. A key for determination of the Palaearctic species of Platyspathius is provided.
