A Study of the Rare Genus Gnamptodon Haliday (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Gnamptodontinae) in Iran, with Three New Records

A survey was conducted to study the species of Gnamptodontinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) in the northern provinces of Iran. The specimens were collected using Malaise traps from different habitats during 2010-2011. Four species of the genus Gnamptodon Haliday, 1833 were collected and identified, which of them three species viz., Gnamptodon breviradialis (Fischer, 1959), G. decoris (Förster, 1862) and G. pumilio (Nees, 1834) are recorded for the first time from Iran. Geographical distribution of the species is briefly discussed. A key is presented to the Iranian species.
