Pimplinae (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae) in a Cerrado fragment in the Reserva Biológica Unilavras/Boqueirão, Ingaí, Minas Gerais, Brazil

The composition of Pimplinae taxocenosis (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae) was investigated in the Reserva Biológica Unilavras/Boqueirão, Ingaí, Minas Gerais. Samples were collected using two Malaise traps (Townes model), installed in a gallery forest and a savanna area between April 2005 and February 2006, totalizing 16 samples in each environment. One hundred specimens of Pimplinae were collected, being represented by 26 species and distributed in 12 genera. Pimpla and Neotheronia were the most abundant with 65 collected specimens. In gallery forest 71 individuals were collected and in savanna, 29. This survey expands the distributional records of Eruga draperi Gauld, 1991; Polysphincta thoracica (Cresson, 1874); Zaglyptus simonis (Marshall, 1892), and Neotheronia hespenheidei Gauld, 1991 towards the Cerrado domain.
