Abstract

A new species of Aprostocetus (Chrysotetrastichus) (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae), A. macrolenei Viggiani sp. nov., has been obtained from the eggs of Macrolenes dentipes (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Clytrinae) and described. It is confirmed that Bloodiella andalusica Nowicki is also an egg parasitoid of the mentioned host. Biological notes on both parasitoids are given. Phenological data on the chrysomelid host and diagnostic characters of its undescribed first-instar larva are provided.
