  • ISSN : 1021-3589



The family Pipunculidae has a potential value for biological pest control, as most pipunculid species are endoparasitoids of the hemipteran suborder Auchenorrhyncha. In the present study, all known Egyptian taxa of the family Pipunculidae (big-headed flies) are systematically catalogued. Old World synonymies, type localities, world distributions by biogeographic realm(s) and country, Egyptian localities and dates of collection are provided. A total number of 24 species belonging to four genera and two tribes has been catalogued.
