Braconidae name index provides an alphabetised list of 23,927 scientific names published to the present. A species name may occur in four locations on the list, 1) as Valid-genus species, 2) as species, Valid-genus, 3) as Original-genus species, and 4) as species, Original-genus. The list was originally compiled from Taxapad Ichneumonoidea database updated to 2007.
Currently, information on the original name, reference to the original description, the unique taxon identifier, and distribution are provided for each taxon. Unique taxon identifier is created from the protologue (the publication in which the taxon was first described), and contains the original name, author and year of publication. This usually is adequate in providing an unique string of characters for each taxon.
