For the first time in 21 years, a new genus of cardiochiline braconid wasp, Kang & Long, (type species Kang, ), is discovered and described. This genus represents the ninth genus in the Oriental region. Two new species ( Kang, and Long, ) are described and illustrated, and a key to species of the genus, with detailed images, is added. Diagnostic characters of the new genus are analyzed and compared with several other cardiochiline genera to allow the genus to key out properly using an existing generic treatment. The scientific names validated by this paper and morphological data obtained from this project will be utilized and tested in the upcoming genus-level revision of the subfamily based on combined morphological and molecular data.
