The majority of the known British and Irish miner hosts of the known British and Irish Ichneumonidae are Lepidoptera (92%).
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.
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.
Unless otherwise stated, all parasitoid / host miner associations of Ichneumonidae are extracted from World Ichneumonoidea by Dicky Sick Ki Yu (http://www.taxapad.com/index.php).
