Abstract

Habrobracon hebetor (Say 1836) is an important biological control agent around the world. Many hundreds of papers have been published about its biology. Due to the global distribution of H. hebetor many species have been described over the years in various countries as a sister species to H. hebetor but were eventually synonymized with H. hebetor. One of which is Habrobracon brevicornis (Wesmael 1838). Here, we revalidate the status of H. brevicornis stat. rest. based on molecular data. It remains difficult to discriminate the two species based on morphology data alone, but with molecular data the differentiation is straight forward. An integrative key is provided to distinguish H. hebetor from H. brevicornis.
