Bracon (Bracon) fulvipes var. carinatus ( Szépligeti, 1901)  

Bracon carinatus Szépligeti, 1901: 183   (in key), 272 (description) (in Hungarian), 1904 (1901): 159 (in key), 166 (description) (in German) ♀, type locality: “ Budapest ” ( Hungary), ♀ lectotype (designated by Papp in 1968) in Magyar Természettudományi Múzeum, Budapest; examined.

Bracon carinatus   – Tobias 1961: 165 (synonymization: “a form” of B. fulvipes   ). — Papp 2004: 172 (type depository, synonymization as B. fulvipes var. carinatus Szépligeti   , stat. nov), 2008: 1785 (taxonomy).

Material examined

24 ♀♀ + 8 ♁♁ from five countries: SPAIN: 1 ♀ + 1 ♁ from one locality. GREECE: 3 ♀♀ from two localities. HUNGARY: 18 ♀♀ + 7 ♁♁ from fifteen localities. EUROPEAN RUSSIA: 1 ♀. MONGOLIA: 1 ♀.

The var. carinatus (Szépligeti)   deviates from the nominate form by the colour pattern

nominate form

ground colour of body reddish yellow to testaceous with much dark brown to black pattern on head, meso- and metasoma of variable extent; hind femur usually reddish yellow, sometimes variably darkening.

variate form

ground colour of body reddish yellow to testaceous with a few dark, i.e. brown to blackish, pattern on ocellar field, propodeum, first tergite; mesoscutum either entirely light coloured or antero-median dark macula more or less present.

Taxonomic position

Within the subgenus Bracon   s. str. the species B. fulvipes   is nearest to B. alutaceus Szépligeti   (Europe, China: “Turkestan”) and B. schmidti Kokujev   (Azerbaidzhan, Uzbeghistan, Iran, Cyprus) viewing their common features: propodeum rugose, strong sculpture of tergites 1-2 and legs yellow or reddish yellow (head and metasoma with rich reddish yellow pattern); the three species are distinguished as follows:

1 (2) First tergite just broader behind than long ( Fig. 60J View Fig ), minute deviations feasible. Propodeum rugose with scrobiculate elements, its medio-longitudinal carina weak ( Fig. 60E View Fig ). Claw clearly downcurved ( Fig. 60G View Fig ). First discal cell high, 1-M twice as long as m-cu ( Fig. 60I View Fig ). Pterostigma brown ( Fig. 60H View Fig ). Mesosoma black, exceptionally with few reddish yellow or rusty pattern; body with much reddish yellow to testaceous pattern ( var. carinatus Szépligeti   ). ♀ ♁: (2.5-) 3-5 mm ............................. ...................................................................................................................... B. (B.) fulvipes Nees, 1834  

2 (1) First tergite 1.2-1.25 times broader behind than long, i.e. clearly broadening posteriorly ( Figs 61F View Fig ; 62A View Fig ). Propodeum with striate elements, its medio-longitudinal carina distinct ( Fig. 61 View Fig G-H). Claw less clearly downcurved ( Figs 61I View Fig ; 62C View Fig ). First discal cell less high, 1-M 1.6-1.7 times as long as m-cu ( Fig. 61J View Fig ; 62D View Fig ). Pterostigma yellow ( Figs 61K View Fig ; 62E View Fig )

3 (4) Propodeum densely rugose, its medio-longitudinal carina issuing anteriorly short and transverse carinulae ( Fig. 61 View Fig G-H). Claw faintly curved, its basal lobe small ( Fig. 61I View Fig ). Second tergite with a characteristic “circular” rugosity ( Fig. 61F View Fig ). Forewing: SR1 approaching tip of wing ( Fig. 61K View Fig ). Body reddish yellow, propodeum and tergites 1-2 with black(ish) pattern. ♀: 3.5 mm ...... ............................................................................................................. B. (B.) schmidti Kokujev, 1912  

4 (3) Propodeum uneven to smooth, its medio-longitudinal carina issuing curved and long striate elements ( Fig. 62B View Fig ). Claw curved, its basal lobe large ( Fig. 62C View Fig ). Second tergite antero-medially rugose, otherwise rugulose ( Fig. 62A View Fig ). Forewing: SR1 reaching tip of wing ( Fig. 62E View Fig ). Body reddish yellow, propodeum and tergites medially blackish to black; body with much black pattern ( var. polonicus Fahringer   ). ♀: (2.8-) 3-4 mm, ♁: 2.5-3 mm .......... B.
