Bracon (Pigeria) piger WESMAEL  

Braco piger WESMAEL 1838: 48   , type locality: "la plaine de Mon-Plaisir, près du Bruxelles " ( Belgium), female lectotype (and one female paralectotype, present designations) in Institut royal des Sciences naturelles de Belgique, Bruxelles; examined. - SHENEFELT 1978: 1580 (literature up to 1974). TOBIAS 1986: 134 (in key). TOBIAS & BELOKOBYLSKIJ 2000: 164 (in key).

Bracon explorator SZÉPLIGETI 1904   (1901): 189 (in key), 194 (description) (in German), type locality: "Siófok" ( Hungary), one female paralectotype (from Siófok, cf. PAPP 2004: 174) identical with B. piger   , further specimens (female lectotype, four female + one male paralectotypes) identical with B. otiosus MARSHALL   : see also this species), types in Magyar Természettudományi Múzeum, Budapest; examined. - TOBIAS 1961: 162 (as synonym of B. variator NEES   ). PAPP 1966: 386 (as synonym of B. maculiger WESMAEL). SHENEFELT 1978: 1572 (as synonym of B. maculiger after PAPP l.c., literature up to 1966). PAPP 2004: 174 (type designation and depository, as synonym of B. piger   , partim: 1 paralectotype).

Bracon rotundatus SZÉPLIGETI 1901a: 270   ("rotundator" in key), 282 (description) (in Hungarian), 1904 (1901): 190 (in key), 195 (description) (in German), type locality: " Budapest " ( Hungary), female lectotype in Magyar Természettudományi Múzeum, Budapest; examined. - TOBIAS 1961: 162 (as synonym of B. variator NEES   ). SHENEFELT 1978: 1587 (as synonym of B. variator Nees   after TOBIAS l.c., literature up to 1967). PAPP 2004: 179 (type designation and depository, as valid species).

Bracon rotundulus SZÉPLIGETI 1904   (1901): 190 (in key), 195 (description) (in German), type locality: " Budapest " ( Hungary), female lectotype (and two female paralectotypes) in Magyar Természettudományi Múzeum, Budapest; examined. - TOBIAS 1961: 162 (as synonym of B. variator NEES   ). PAPP 1966: 378 (as synonym of B. variator   ). SHENEFELT 1978: 1587 (as synonym of B. variator   after TOBIAS l.c., literature up to 1967). PAPP 2004: 180 (type designation and depository, as B. variator var. rotundulus   ).

R e m a r k: 1.) The synonymization of the names B. explorator   (partim), B. rotundatus   and B. rotundulus   is based on the examination of the types of the taxa in question inclu-

ding that of B. piger   too. Their identity with B. maculiger ( PAPP 1966), B. praecox ( TELENGA 1936)   and B. variator   ( PAPP 1966, SHENEFELT 1978, TOBIAS 1961) is rejected. The redescription, taxonomic position etc. of B. piger   is planned to be presented in a revision of WESMAEL’ s Bracon species.   - 2.) The subgenus Pigeria   was set up by Van ACHTERBERG (1985) originally as a new genus closely related to Bracon   . I consider this taxon but a subgenus of the genus Bracon   .
