Abstract

An account is given of four species of Hymenoptera parasitoids probably of the wood boring beetle Clytocera chinospila Gahan (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) from Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, southern Western Ghats, Kerala. Two new hymenopteran species, Eurytoma chinnarensis (Eurytomidae) and Foenatopus idukkiensis (Stephanidae) are described. Solenura ania Walker (Pteromalidae) is reported for the first time from Kerala and Western Ghats with a new host record, and Doryctus sp. (Braconidae) is reported here.
