The tribe Meteorini includes only the two genera Meteorus Haliday, 1835 and Zele Curtis, 1832. Material of these genera have been examined in the collections at the Natural history museum in Oslo. Nine species not previously reported from Norway were found, i.e. Meteorus affinis (Wesmael, 1835), M. alborossicus Lobodenko, 2000, M. consimilis (Nees, 1834), M. limbatus Maeto, 1988, M. lionotus Thomson, 1895, M. obfuscatus (Nees, 1811), M. ruficeps (Nees, 1834), M. tabidus (Wesmael, 1835) and Zele annulicrus (Thomson, 1895). This makes the Norwegian number of Meteorus up to 22 and Zele to 5. All European species of Zele are now recorded in Norway. Several new county records are also presented, including records of M. cespitator (Thunberg, 1822), which previously only has been published as Norwegian without any further information. Biology and distribution for each species are briefly discussed. For several species additional information on host associations are given.
