Abstract


Telenomus hysteropteri sp. n. (Hym., Scelionidae, Telenominae) has been reared in Italy from eggs of Hysteropterum flavescens Oliv. (Rhynchota, Fulgoridae). Only the female is known. The shape of the cheeks, protruding at right angles to the level of the lower orbit of compounds eyes, is an unusual and distinctive character.

From the same host and in the same localities also Telenomus sacchii Ogl. has been reared, so far the only known T elenomus parasite of this fulgorid.

Occasionaly, Azotus pulcherrimus Merc. (Hym., Aphelinidae) has also been reared from eggs of Hysteropterum.
