Abstract:Patasson luna (Girault) was collected from alfalfa weevil eggs at Guelph, Ontario, in 1971. This species has been reported from several locations in the United States and has apparently spread northward following its host.
Fidiobia rugosifrons (Crawford) emerged from over wintering eggs at Guelph in 1972. This is a first record of this native species as a parasite of the alfalfa weevil. The seasonal occurrence and percent parasitism of both P. luna and F. rugosifrons throughout two years are reported. The significance of these parasites in Ontario is discussed.
