We record for the first time the species Pimpla croceiventris (Cresson, 1868), P. golbachi (Porter, 1970), and P. sumichrasti Cresson, 1874, belonging to the Pimplini tribe (Ichneumonidae, Pimplinae), in northeastern Brazil. These species have been recorded in the south and southeast of Brazil, except for P. croceiventris, which has also been recorded in the north of the country. Regarding the development of larvae and its physiological characteristics, Pimpla Fabricius, 1804 is one of the most well-studied genera within ichneumonids. These new distribution records will contribute to the understanding of physiological tolerances in different habitats as well as discoveries of new parasitoid-host interactions in new environments.
