Abstract

The parasitoids of Nothris verbascella larvae (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) found on Verbascum densiflorum and V. sinuatum (Scrophulariaceae) in Edirne, Turkey were studied between May 2005 and May 2007. Three species of Ichneumonidae (Hymenoptera) were recorded as parasitoids of N. verbascella (Temelucha interruptor, T. decorata, and Tricholabus femoralis). Parasitoidism by T. decorata on N. verbascella larvae is a new record for Turkey. In addition, we first report new host-parasitoid relationships: N. verbascella with T. interruptor and Tricholabus femoralis. Tricholabus femoralis is also a new record for the Turkish fauna. The presence of N. verbascella on V. densiflorum and V. sinuatum is a new record. This study also reports the first host record of Tricholabus femoralis.
