oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Records and Descriptions of African Encyrtidea - 3 (Hymenoptera: Chalcicoidea)
The species of Encyrtidae descriptionbed below have been collected from various South African localities by rearing from identified host insects. Of especial interest are the two species of Ooencyrtus Ashmead, parasitic in the eggs of epilachniine Coccinellidae, and the species of Neocladia Perkins, reared from the nymphs of a jassid near Pretoria. The striking and distinctive new species of Microterys Thomson and Metaphycus Mercet were obtained as parasitoids of two species of lecaniine coccoids.
