Apanteles glomeratus, copyright André Lequet.

Belongs within: Braconidae.

The Ichneutinae are generally recognised as a small group of braconids endoparasitic on larvae of Lepidoptera or Hymenoptera (Tenthredinoidea), characterised by the presence of an abrupt curve at the anterior end of forewing vein 1-M (Achterberg 1993). However, Achterberg (1993) suggested that Ichneutinae was paraphyletic to a number of other subfamilies. These include the Microgastrinae, a diverse group of endoparasites of larval Lepidoptera characterised by eighteen-segmented antennae, which are among the earliest braconids to emerge in spring in many parts of the world (Achterberg 1993).
