General index. "This manual is the part I of the Ichneumonologia Indica Series, which deals with sub family Mesosteninae of family Ichneumonidae (Hymenoptera : Parasitica). It is aimed to provide a taxonomic guide to identify genera and species of this subfamily in India and adjacent countries. The member of this subfamily are parasitic on the larvae and pupae of other insects and some are parasitic on spiders or their eggs. By their parasitic habits they destroy a large number of insects injurious to agriculture and forestry. It is in this context, the taxornomic knowledge of these parasites and their hosts becomes all the more essential. The present manual deals with 308 species and 18 subspecies under 68 genera. Of these, 2 subgenera and 23 species are described as new to science. Therefore, this manual will help in identifications of these parasitic species, their distribution, hosts relationship and also their utilization in Biological Control Programme." (jacket).
