The material reported on in this paper was reared from the nests or from immature stages of African xylocopid and hylaeid bees. All the species dealt with are probably polyembryonic primary parasites. Names of these parasites are required for use in the publication of systematic and ecological research on the bees and on their natural enemies which is being undertaken by the principal collectors, Dr R. H. Watmough, Plant Protection Research Institute, Pretoria, and Professor C. D. Michener, University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas.
