Summary

Species ofScelionidae, parasiting in eggs ofLymantria dispar (L.) are mentioned and the results of use of these parasites are added. A new egg-parasite of gipsy moth —Hadronotus lymantriae n.sp. — is described. A key to Scelionid egg-parasites living inLymantria dispar (L.) is given. Attention is drawn to the fact thatH. bernardi Manev. is a nomen nudum. Finally, the author discusses the phylogenetical and taxonomical internal relations inHadronotus Foerst.

Résumé

L'auteur mentionne les différentes espèces de Scélionides parasites des œufs deLymantria dispar (L.) et rappelle les résultats obtenus par l'utilisation de ces parasites. Un nouveau parasite des œufs de ce Bombyx,Hadronotus lymantriae n. sp., est décrit. Il est montré en outre queH. bernardi Manev. doit être considérénomen nudum. Enfin l'auteur discute les relations phylogéniques et taxonomiques des espèces du genreHadronotus Foerst.
