ABSTRACT. Karyotype of Latibulus argiolus (Rossi, 1790) (Ichneumonidae), a widespread parasitoid of the wasp genus Polistes Latreille, 1802 (Vespidae), was studied for the first time using chromosome morphometrics. In this species, n = 9 and 2n = 18 were found. No karyotypic difference between the examined populations of L. argiolus from different host species and geographical regions was detected.
KEY WORDS. Latibulus argiolus, Ichneumonidae, karyotype, chromosomes.
