Main Article Content
Fairyfly genus Proarescon Huber, 2017 (Hymenoptera: Mymaridae) is reported for the first time from India and the specific identity is confirmed as P. primitivus (Huber, 2002) after consulting keys from Huber (2017); this genus is still known only from the Oriental region. A note on diagnosis and distribution of this species is also provided.
