Collections of immature stages of 7 nuisance Diptera in southern California during 1962-65 revealed 8 parasitic Hymenoptera in 5 families attacking the larval and pupal stages. Comparisons with parasitic fauna reported from other parts of the world show that 25 known insect parasites in 10 families are lacking from these hosts in southern California. A short discussion of the species which might be advantageously introduced is included.
