Giraudiella inclusa (Frauenfeld) (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) induces galls in stems of Phragmites australis in wetland habitats. The parasitoid community (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) associated with the galls was studied in Kent, England. Nine species of Chalcidoidea were identified. This rich community forms an important part of the biodiversity of stands of P. australis.
