Abstract: We list 29 species of cynipid inquilines (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae, Cynipinae, Synergini) for the Hungarian fauna and 38 species for the Western Palaearctic region. Fourteen cynipid inquiline names with uncertain status are given. Two new names, Synergus samnalievae Pujade-Villar et Melika and S. vassilevaensis Pujade-Villar et Melika and four names with a new status, Synergus radiatus Mayr, 1872, S. pallipes Hartig, 1840, S. tibialis Hartig, 1840, and Synophrus pilulae Giraud in Houard, 1911 are proposed; one Periclistus and 29 Synergus species are newly synonymized. Lectotypes for 22 inquiline species are designated. Host cynipid gall-inducing wasps, synonymy, distributionand biological data for each species are given. For 17 species of cynipid inquilines 45 new cynipid gall wasp hosts are given, which are not mentioned yet in the literature and recorded for the first time from the Hungarian fauna. Identification keys for species distributed in Hungary are also given.
