Summary: Abstract: The genus Conura present the highest species richness in the family Chalcididae and is almost exclusively from the New W orld. Currently it assemblies 305 described species, but some authors estimate more than 1000 existing species. The species of the genus are distributed in 65 groups of species. One of these groups of species are the vau group, which are recorded only from Neotropical region and assembles two described species, C. vau (Ashmead) e C. parides Tavares & Navarro-Tavares. After analyzing specimens from several collections around the world, undescribed species was found, which corroborates published records. Therefore, here it is presented a revison of vau species group. The two previously described species are redescribed and eight new species are proposed. Additionally, an identification key and illustrations for all studied species are presented, further new morphological features are described for the group of species. New records of geographic distribution for the species and for the species group are registered as well.
Key words: Chalcidoidea, parasitoids, taxonomy
