Grand Teton National Park Report
A survey of braconid wasps in GTNP and south YNP recognizes 71 genera and at least 150 species. Of these, 100 are new distribution records and at least nine are new (undescribed) species. The species richness of Braconidae in GYE (150 species) is substantially greater than the maximum species richness of all herbaceous plants, shrubs, trees, birds and mammals in lodgepole pine communities of YNP (112 species). This total also substantially exceeds the number of braconid species recorded in firedisturbed habitats of south YNP (109 species).
