The present contribution is based on the genus Bracon Fabricius, 1804 collected from the southern part of Iran during 2010-2013. A total of 10 species belonging to 6 subgenera were collected and identified, of which 2 subgenera (Ophthalmobracon Tobias, 1957, and Osculobracon) and 6 species are recorded for the first time from Iran. The newly recorded species from Iran are as follows: Bracon (Glabrobracon) ahngeri Telenga, 1936; Bracon (Habrobracon) didemie (Beyarslan, 2002); Bracon (Ophthalmobracon) ophthalmicus Telenga, 1933; Bracon (Osculobracon) erzurumiensis Beyarslan, 2002; Bracon (Osculobracon) osculator Nees 1811; and Bracon (Glabrobracon) obscurator Nees, 1811.
