Abstract

Chinese Palmon Dalman (Hymenoptera: Torymidae: Toryminae) are revised. Species are parasitoids in mantid egg masses. Palmon longistigmus Xiao & Zhao sp. nov., is described as new, and two species, Palmon greeni (Crawford) and Palmon megarhopalus (Masi), are newly reported from the China mainland and redescribed. The new species can be distinguished by the length of postmarginal vein and number of teeth on metafemur. A key to the three Chinese species is provided.
