AbstractA new species, Cassidibracon repens Gupta sp. n. from Karnataka, India, is described and illustrated along with the host caterpillar and cocoons and differentiated from other closely allied Indian species.

The main diagnostic characters include - second, third and fourth metasomal tergites with midlongitudinal carina; ovipositor length 0.53í— length of gaster; OOL/POL = 2.5; eye length/malar space = 3.33; median flagellomeres approximately 2âˆ’2.27í— longer than wide and antenna with 24 flagellomeres.
