Blepyrus insularis (Cameron) (Encyrtidae) was reared from Phenacoccus parvus Morrison, an invasive mealybug recently found infesting Psidium sp. in Egypt. Encarsia cibcensis Lopez-Avila (Aphelinidae) was reared from Aleuroclava psidii (Singh) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae), an invasive whitefly found on Ficus sp. in Egypt. Mesopeltita truncatipennis (Waterston) (Pteromalidae) was reared from the lecanodiaspid scale, Lecanodiaspis africana (Newstead) (Hemiptera: Lecanodiaspididae) on Ficus sp. All of these represent new host records for the parasitoids.
