Keys are given to the Western Palaearctic genera of the subfamily Cheloninae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), and to Western Palaearctic species of the genera Phanerotoma Wesmael and Phanerotomella Szépligeti of the tribe Phanerotomini.

The following new specific synonyms are established: Phanerotomella nigra Szépligeti, 1900 and P. flavipes Snoflák, 1951 with P. bisulcata (Herrich-Schäffer, 1838); Phanerotoma picta Snoflák, 1951 with P. diversa (Walker, 1874); P. bicolor Snoflák, 1958, P. asini Llopsis, 1967, and P. snoflaki Shenefelt, 1973 with P. planifrons (Nees, 1816); P. minor Snoflák, 1951 with Chelonus dentatus Panzer, 1805; Phanerotoma antennalis Snoflák, 1951 with Chelonus tritomus Marshall, 1898; P. rjabovi Vojnovskaja-Krieger, 1929, P. media Shestakov, 1930, P. hispanica var. desertorum Hedwig, 1957, and P. flavitestacea Fischer, 1959 with P. ocularis Kohl, 1906; P. rugiferum Wesmael, 1838 and P. platypyga Snoflák, 1951 with P. rufescens (Latreille, 1809); P. sareptana Kohl, 1906 with P. katkowi Kokujev, 1900; P. olearia Fischer, (Dec.) 1968 with P. permixtellae Fischer, (April) 1968. Nine new species are described, a neotype is designated for Chelonus dentatus Panzer, 1805 and a lectotype for Phanerotoma bilinea Lyle, 1924, P. kozlovi Shestakov, 1930, P. masiana Fahringer, 1934, and P. desertorum Hedwig, 1957.
