Abstract

Natural enemies of the banana lacewing bug, Stephanitis typica (Distant) (Hemiptera: Tingidae) in India are documented. Diagnostic notes on Stethoconus praefectus (Distant), an obligate predator of S. typica with details of its other tingid hosts and host plants are provided. Two egg parasitoids, Erythmelus panis Enock and Anagrus sp. (Hymenoptera: Mymaridae) are reported as egg parasitoids of S. typica from Tamil Nadu and Manipur, respectively, the latter being the first record of this host association in the world.
