Lonchodryinus hovanus Olmi, 2004

Lonchodryinus madagascolus Olmi, Copeland & van Noort, 2019

 

Lonchodryinus pauliani (Benoit, 1954)

 

Lonchodryinus seyrigi (Benoiti, 1954)

Distribution

Worldwide.

Biology

Hosts: Cicadellidae (excluding Typhlocybinae).

 

The records of Typhlocybinae as hosts of Lonchodryinus ruficornis (Dalman) (Menozzi, 1942 and Olmi, 1984) are erroneous (only Aphelopus species parasitize cicadellid species in this subfamily) (Guglielmino et al. 2013).
