Contribution to the knowledge of the chalcid parasitoid complex (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) of agromyzid leafminers (Diptera: Agromyzidae) from Turkey, with new hosts and records.
A total of nineteen parasitoid species were recorded from agromyzid leafminers in some sites of Middle Anatolia. These species were: Diglyphus iseae (Walker), D. pachyneurus Graham, D. crassinervis Erdös, D. pusztenzis (Erdös & Novicky), D. begini (Ashmead), Baryscapus sp., Hemiptarsenus zilahisebessi Erdös, Pnigalio soemius (Walker), Neochrysocharis formosa (Westwood), N. clara Szelenyi, N. arvensis Graham, N. chlorogaster (Erdös), Chrysocharis pentheus (Walker), C. phyrne (Walker), C. pubicornis (Zetterstedt), C. viridis (Nees), Pediobius metallicus (Walker) (Eulophidae), Epiclerus panyas (Walker) (Tetracampidae), and Merismus sp. (Pteromalidae). Among the parasitoids reared, Diglyphus begini and Chrysocharis viridis have been for the first time found in Turkey, D. crassinervis, H. zilahisebessi, N. clara and E. panyas were recorded from Chromatomyia horticola and P. soemius was recorded from Liriomyza strigata were recorded for the first time.
