The parasitoids of FAW in the families Ichneumonidae, Braconidae, Eulophidae (order Hymenoptera) and Tachinidae (order Diptera) have been inventoried in the Mexican states Coahuila, Michoacan, Jalisco, Sinaloa, Nayarit, Veracruz, Colima, Yucatan, among others (MolinaOchoa et al.
2004) found FAW larvae parasitized by specimens belonging to the families Braconidae (Aleoides, Chelonus, Cotesia, Glyptapanteles, Homolobus, and Meteorus genera), Ichneumonidae (Campoletis, Eiphosoma, Ophion, and Pristomerus genera), and Eulophidae (Aprostocetus, Euplectrus, and Horismenus) in Michoacan, Jalisco, Sinaloa, Nayarit, Veracruz, and Colima, Mexico, in various crops.
These families include Ichneumonidae (Arthur & Wylie 1959), Pteromalidae (Assem 1971), Braconidae (Tillman & Cate 1993), Aphelinidae (Opp & Luck 1986) and Eulophidae (Corrigan & Lashomb 1990); in addition to the Trichogrammatidae demonstrated by Salt (1940).

After the introduction of CLM in the Americas, 3 new species belonging to the Eulophidae family were described: Cirrospilus floridensis Evans, Cirrospilus neotropicus Diez and Fidalgo, and Galeopsomyia fausta LaSalle (LaSalle & Pena 1997; Evans 1999; Diez & Fidalgo 2003).
Tamarixia radiata (Waterston) (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae, an ectoparasitoid) and Diaphorencyrtus aligarhensis (Shafee, Alam and Argarwal) (Hemiptera: Encyrtidae, an endoparasitiod) are the only known primary parasitoids of D.
Parasitoids from several families of Chalcidoidea have been reported as natural enemies of P nigra in the world: Encyrtidae, Aphelinidae, Eulophidae, Eupelmidae and Pteromalidae.
tabaci species complex, or of whiteflies in general, we evince caution in doing so for the following reasons; (i) no other species of Neochrysocharis has been associated with the Aleyrodidae; (ii) primary whitefly parasitism in the family Eulophidae appears to be restricted to the tribe Euderomphalini; (iii) N.
