Abstract

The north-western European species of the vitripennis, pallipes, octonarius, triangulator, fraternus, formosus, parasitellae, metacarpalis and circumscriptus-groups of Apanteles are revised. Sixty-five species are dealt with, of which twenty-four are described as new. One species, A. exiguus (Haliday), is lifted from synonymy. Brief notes are added on North American species of the circumscriptus-group in the British Museum (Nat. Hist.) to assist their eventual correlation with the European species. Reference is also made to two species of Hypomicrogaster.
