We set 7 Malaise traps in 7 different altitudes and collected material during whole vegetation season every 10 days. The altitude range was from 666 to 2559 m. Material is under identification. At the moment only Encyrtidae family is completely identified and we have almost 120 species, with 45 new species records for Georgia and 24 for Transcaucasus. 7 species are new to science. From already identified 9 genera of Eulophids 33 species are new to Georgia and 32 for Transcaucasus. This is just tiny information to give you idea what a high and interesting diversity is in this reserve.
