More than 2,500 species of Ichneumonidae (including several in prep.) are currently recorded from Britain and Ireland (see Checklist of British and Irish Ichneumonidae by G. Broad, updated March 2016.

The distribution of British and Irish parasitoids of all orders is not well known, with large areas devoid of records.

See Identification key to the subfamilies of Ichneumonidae (Hymenoptera) and Begnners guide to identifying British ichneumonids.

All of the parasitoids and their associated host miners listed here occur in Britain (albeit in quaratine or glasshouses only). The associations themselves, however, may not be from Britain or Ireland.
