Dryinus laotianus sp. nov. is described from Hua Phan Province (Laos). Dryinus laotianus can be distinguished from the related Oriental spe­cies D. mansus Olmi and D. stantoni Ashmead by the different sculpture of the scutum (punctate and unsculptured among punctures in D. laotianus; granulated or partly reticulate rugose in D. stantoni; completely reticulate rugose in D. mansus).



Se describe la nueva especie Dryinus laotianus, obtenida en la provincia de Hua Phan (Laos). D. laotianus puede ser diferenciada de las especies orientales más cercanas (D.mansus Olmi y D.stantoni Ashmead) por la escultura diferente en el escudo (puntuada pero sin escultura entre las puntuaciones en D. laotianus; granulada o bien en parte rugosa en D. stantoni; completamente rugosa en D. mansus).
