Euphorinae is a moderately diverse subfamily of Braconidae. Euphorines are important parasitoids of adult hemimetabolous and Holometabolous insects. The present research is based on the euphoria specimens present in the entomological collection of The University of Agriculture, Peshawar. The specimens were collected from different areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province during 1994-2013. The study revealed the existence of 11 genera in the province. These genera are: Aridelus Marshall, Centistes Haliday Dinocampus Foerster, Ecclitura Kokujev, Microctonus Wesmael, Peristenus Foerster, Streblocera Westwood, Cosmophorus Ratzeburg, Leiophron Nees, Marshiella Shaw and Wesmaelia Foerster. An illustrated key to the identification of these genera is presented.
