The present study is based on material collected through an intensive sampling in north-eastern Italy, with thirteen species of the subfamily Campopleginae (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae) newly recorded for Italy: Campoletis agilis (Holmgren, 1860), C. thomsoni (Roman, 1915), Campoplex punctulatus (Szépligeti, 1916), C. rothi (Holmgren, 1860), Diadegma annulicrus (Thomson, 1887), Echthronomas ochrostoma (Holmgren, 1860), Hyposoter coxator (Thomson, 1887), H. discedens (Schmiedeknecht, 1909), H. meridionellator Aubert, 1965, H. tenuicosta (Thomson, 1887), Olesicampe binotata (Thomson, 1887), Rhimphoctona melanura (Holmgren, 1860) and Sinophorus nitidus (Brischke, 1880). Hyposoter meridionellator Aubert, 1965 (stat. rev.) is recognized as a different species to Hyposoter rufovariatus (Schmiedeknecht, 1909). The male of Echthronomas facialis (Thomson, 1887) and the hitherto unknown male of Echthronomas ochrostoma (Holmgren, 1860) are described for the first time. The number of Campopleginae known from Italy is raised to 245 species.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
