Abstract

Oophagous biological control agents of T. absoluta naturally present in crops in South America (Buenos Aires and Tucumán Provinces, Argentina) and Europe (Lazio, Italia) were surveyed. A taxonomic list of species and the natural mortality rates caused by parasitism and predation are reported. Furthermore, the first record of Encarsia porteri (Mercet) (Hymenoptera: Aphelinidae) parasitizing T. absoluta eggs is informed.
