H o s t: unknown.

D i s t r i b u t i o n: England, Sweden, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania (Transylvania), Armenia.

R e m a r k: Within the subgenus Bracon   s.str. the species B. rugulosus   is very near to B. longicollis WESMAEL   considering their common features as elongated mesosoma, sculpture of tergites and colour of body; the two species are separated by the features not easy to recognize:

1 (2) Head in dorsal view somewhat more transverse, 1.85-1.9(-2) times as broad as long, temple receded ( Fig. 297 View Figs 290-300 ). First tergite beyond pair of spiracles subparallel sided, usually somewhat longer than broad behind ( Fig. 298 View Figs 290-300 ). Hind femur 3-3.2 times () and 3-3.5 times () as long as broad medially ( Figs 299, 300 View Figs 290-300 ). Sculpture of tergites 2-3 relatively less strong. Tegula usually reddish yellow.: 3-5 mm ............. ................................................................................... B. (B.) longicollis WESMAEL 1838  

2 (1) Head in dorsal view somewhat less transverse, 1.7-1.8 times as broad as long, temple rounded ( Figs 280 View Figs 279-289 , 290 View Figs 290-300 ). First tergite evenly broadening posteriorly, as long as broad to somewhat longer than broad behind ( Figs 288 View Figs 279-289 , 295, 296 View Figs 290-300 ). Hind femur 2.6-2.8 times () and 2.9-3.3 times () as long as broad medially ( Figs 292- 294 View Figs 290-300 ). Sculpturte of tergites 2-3 relatively strong ( Fig. 288 View Figs 279-289 ). Tegula usually black to brown.: 3.5-4.5 mm,: 2.5-3.5 mm ..................... B. (B.) rugulosus SZÉPLIGETI 1901
