A Contribution to some Chalcidoida Wasps (Hymenoptera) from Iran
Parasitic wasps operate at a high trophic level and, because of their biology, tend to be highly specialized, sometimes having very narrow host ranges with at least local monophagy a frequent outcome. With attention to the high importance of superfamily Chalcidoidea in biological control programs of most ecosystems, the fauna of these beneficial insects was studied. A total of 69 species from 7 families including Eurytomidae, Torymidae, Ormyridae, Pteromalidae, Encyrtidae, Eupelmidae and Signiphoridae was identified. In this paper, the hosts of some parasitoids are given too.
