Areopraon chaitophori n. sp. associated with Chaitophorus leucomelas Koch on Populus nigra is described and illustrated. The main diagnostic characters of Areopraon species are discussed, and a key for identification of European species is provided. The distal dorsal part of the second metasomal tergite of Areopraon species has a very prominent horizontal longitudinal protuberance, which represents a new diagnostic character for Areopraon.
