Martikainen, P. & Koponen, M. 2001: Meteorus corax Marshall, 1898 (Hymenoptera:
Braconidae), a new species to Finland and Russian Karelia, with
an overview of northern species of Meteorus parasitizing beetles. - Entomol.
Fennica 12: 169-172.
Meteorus corax (Hymenoptera, Braconidae) is reported for the first time from Finland and Russian Karelia. The Finnish specimens were reared from standing dead pine where Monochamus galloprovincialis (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae) was presumably the host, and in addition, from firewood presumably from Callidium violaceum (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae). The specimens from Russian Karelia were reared from pupae, which almost certainly originated from the larvae of Pytho depressus (Coleoptera, Pythidae). No parasitic hymenopterans have previously been recorded from the family Pythidae. The genus Meteorus includes several species yet to be found from Finland.
