Abstract [en]

In Sweden, the parasitic wasp family Braconidae belongs to the top-three species-richest insect families, together with Ichneumonidae (Hymenoptera) and Staphylinidae (Coleoptera). Currently 1089 species are reported from Sweden. The world species of Braconidae are divided into 31 subfamilies and 172 genera. Several new species has been discovered in Sweden within the subfamily Euphoriane (Stigenberg & Ronquist 2011) and there is material enough to increase the Braconidae records up to at least 1500 species in Sweden. Here I present a new genus to Sweden with a distribution covering Sweden from the North to the South. So far 52 specimens of the species Spathicopis flavocephala have been found in Sweden.
