Doryctobracon anastrephilus (Marsh, 1970)
This is the only species of Doryctobracon known to be endemic to the United States. It is possible that the natural ranges of both Doryctobracon crawfordi and Doryctobracon areolatus also included southern United States prior to urbanization, but both of these species are widely distributed throughout Latin America whereas D. anastrephilus is thus far known only from Florida.
