Trissolcus jatrophae Rajmohana et al. 2011, a parasitoid wasp has been observed to parasitize hemipteran eggs laid on Jatropha nana Dalzell & Gibson (Euphorbiaceae) growing in Pune city, Maharashtra. In the present communication, this wasp has been reported for the first time on a new host plant species, and the occurrence of this wasp also forms a new distributional record.ÂÂ
