Bracon (Glabrobracon) variator NEES  

Bracon variator NEES 1811: 7   , type locality:?Sickershausen ( Germany), syntype series: many female and male specimens, destroyed. Nees 1834: 77 (redescription). - TOBIAS 1961: 162 (redescription, synonyms). SHENEFELT 1978: 1584 (literature up to 1974). TOBIAS 1986: 134 (in key). TOBIAS & BELOKOBYLSKIJ 2000: 143 (in key).

Bracon breviventris SZÉPLIGETI 1901a: 268   (in key), 282 (description) (in Hungarian), 1904 (1901): 188 (in key), 194 (description) (in German), type locality: "Pápa" ( Hungary), female lectotype (and two female paralectotypes) in Magyar Természettudományi Múzeum, Budapest; examined. - TOBIAS 1961: 164 (as synonym of B. maculiger WESMAEL). SHENEFELT 1978: 1572 (as synonym of B. maculiger after TOBIAS l.c., literature up to 1966). TOBIAS 1986: 134 (in key, as synonym of B. variator   ). PAPP 2004: 172 (female lectotype: as synonym of B. dichromus WESMAEL   , two female paralectotypes: as syonym of B. variator var. maculiger   ).

Bracon collinus SZÉPLIGETI 1896: 292   (description, in Hungarian), 366 (description, in German), type locality: " Budapest " ( Hungary), female lectotype (and one female paralectotype) in Magyar Természettudományi Múzeum, Budapest; examined. - SZÉPLIGETI 1904 (1901): 190 (in key, in German). PAPP 1966: 392 (as synonym of B. variator   ). SHENEFELT 1978: 1585 (as synonym of B. variator   , literature up to 1966). TOBIAS 1986: not mentioned. PAPP 2004: 172 (type designation and depository).

R e m a r k: The forms B. breviventris   and B. collinus   are representing variety of B. variator var. maculiger (WESMAEL)   . It seems remarkable to point out that the species B. variator   is highly variable considering its colour pattern, length of ovipositor apparatus and a few corporal measurements (on head, alar venation, tergites). The describer E. V. NEES (l.c.) himself has perceived this extreme variability denominating the many colour forms with Latin and Greek letters. - Besides SZÉPLIGETI’ s two species there have been

described further species too which proved identical with B. variator   (B. bipartitus WESMAEL, B. cieslikii NIEZABITOWSKI   , B. collaris TELENGA   , B. guttator PANZER   , B. kotulai NIEZABITOWSKI, B.   maculiger Wesmael, B. minutator SPINOLA   , B. ornatulus TELENGA   , B. rimulator NIEZABITOWSKI   ). The redescription, taxonomic position etc. of B. variator   is planned to be presented in a revision of WESMAEL’ s Bracon species   as the first reviser of B. variator   ).
