Diagnosis. Species characterized by the combination of several characters: coxae 1–2 whitish, fore wing with 2Rsm distincly shorter than section of M between 2Rs-M and 2m-Cu, propodeum without longitudinal carina, ovipositor long (OTi 1.2–1.3), strongly and regularly upcurved.

Description. Rousse (2011).

Comments. Eriborus pallipes is by far the commonest ichneumonid wasp in Reunion though its biology is still unknown. It has been collected in many localities of various climatic and altidudinal conditions. The coloration of legs and metasoma is highly variable. Eriborus species have a median longitudinal row of hairs on the basitarsus, which is often hard to observe on E. pallipes , especially for individuals with dark legs.

Distribution records. Reunion.
