Abstract

The moth Orgyia ericae Germar (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) is an important pest of deciduous trees and woody scrublands in northern China. A survey within this pest-affected zone was conducted to collect and rear braconid parasitoids associated with the immature stages of the moths. A new braconid parasitoid of this pest, Bracon (Habrobracon) erduos sp. nov., is recognized and described. It proved to be an ectoparasitoid of the larvae of Orgyia ericae Germar. The examined specimens are deposited in the Parasitic Hymenoptera Collection, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China (ZJUH).
