Taxonomic position

Within the subgenus Osculobracon   the species B. osculator   is nearest to B. cingulator Szépligeti. Considering   their long vein SR1 approaching to reaching tip of forewing, the two species differ by the following features:

1 (2) First tergite 1.3-1.4(-1.6) times as long as broad behind, third tergite one-third longer than second tergite ( Fig. 65I View Fig ). Temple in dorsal view rounded ( Fig. 65B View Fig ). Mesosoma in lateral view 1.4 times as long as high. Claw slightly more downcurved and its basal lobe more distinct ( Fig. 65F View Fig ). Legs brown with yellow(ish) pattern. Body black (nominate form). Head and mesosoma with more or less brownish to reddish yellow colour pattern, legs more or less yellow ( var. temporalis Telenga   ). ♀: (1.5-) 2.2-3.5 mm .............................................................................. B. (Osc.) osculator Nees, 1811  

2 (1) First tergite 1.8-2 times as long as broad behind, third tergite twice longer than second tergite ( Fig. 66A, D View Fig ). Temple in dorsal view receded ( Fig. 66 View Fig E-G). Mesosoma in lateral view 1.5-1.8 times as long as high. Claw less downcurved and its basal lobe less distinct ( Fig. 66H View Fig ). Legs yellow. ♀: (1.8-)2.4-3(-3.5) mm ................................................................... B. (Osc.) cingulator Szépligeti, 1901
