In Sardinia vineyards Delrio et al. (1987) obtained by Lobesia botrana  an unidentified species of Habrobracon  which, along with other species ( Elachertus affinis  Masi, Agathis  sp. and Chelonus  sp.), emerged from 10-12% of the first generation larvae and from 5% of second and third generation larvae. The genus Habrobracon  Ashmead, 1895 is also used in synonymy with Bracon  Fabricius, 1804, in the Fauna Europaea, where nearly 250 species of this genus in Europe are listed.
