This subfamily was previously known only from the Cenomanian Obeshchayushchiy locality in the Russian Far East; the two new representatives of Labenopimplinae described below, found at the Turonian Orapa locality in Botswana, are the first and only known Cretaceous ichneumonids from Africa and the southern hemisphere.
antiqua (Linnaeus, 1758) have probably been separated since the earliest appearance of the genus in the Late Eocene 33-37 MYA (Amano, 1997); Provanna and Desbruyeresia are known from Cenomanian (Cretaceous) seep deposits in Japan, 93-100 MYA (Kaim et al., 2008a), which thus can be considered a minimum age of the split between the genera.
