Abstract

Three parasitoids, a hyperparasitoid and an associate parasitoid were recorded on the invasive mealybug, Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) in Turkey: Anagyrus aligarhensis Agarwal & Alam, Anagyrus sp. near dactylopii (Howard), Leptomastix epona (Walker), Prochiloneurus uyguni Hayat, sp. n. and Homalotylus hemipterinus (De Stefani). L. epona and H. hemipterinus are new records for the fauna of Encyrtidae of Turkey.
