Abstract

Emersonella curculiovora sp. nov. ( Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) is described from the Central Valley in Costa Rica. The species is diagnosed and compared to other species in the genus. It was reared from eggs of an undescribed species of Camptocheirus ( Coleoptera: Curculionidae), from stems of Cinnamomum cinnamomifolium ( Lauraceae). The parasitoid is mainly solitary, but occasionally two individuals emerge from each host.
