Abstract: A two-part annotated check-list of Pteromalidae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) of
Morocco aims to present updated information on this rather neglected group of
parasitoid wasps. The first part includes 113 species belonging to 65 genera
from 11 subfamilies – Asaphinae, Cerocephalinae, Cleonyminae, Eunotinae,
Macromesinae, Miscogastrinae, Ormocerinae, Pireninae, Pteromalinae,
Spalangiinae, and Sycoryctinae. One species, Cleonymus longigaster Mitroiu sp.
nov., is described as new, and three species (Notanisus versicolorWalker,
1837 and Miscogaster maculataWalker, 1833 and Gastrancistus aff. vagans
Westwood, 1833) are newly recorded for the fauna of Morocco. For each species,
its distribution in Morocco and hosts are presented.
