Abstract
Caterpillars of the mining micro-moth Phyllocnistis labyrinthella feed on leaves of aspen (Populus tremula) and are often parasitized by eulophid wasps. The parasitoids are a potential important cause of death for the miners. During 2009-2011 we collected mined leaves from an experimental stand of aspen trees in Västerbotten. Adults emerged from 17-35 percent of the mines and of these every second to third specimen appeared as wasps. These wasps represented seven species of eulophid parasitoids of which three were new to Västerbotten: Chrysocharis nitetis (Walker), Cirrospilus diallus (Walker) and Cirrospilus pictus (Nees). We include an identification key that may be used to identify these eulophid species.
