A new species of Ametallon Ashmead, A. carinatum sp. n. and five new species of Chrysonotomyia Ashmead, C. dussiae sp. n., C. longicaudata sp. n., C. machaeriae sp. n., C. unimaculata sp. n. and C. claviger sp. n. (Eulophidae: Entedoninae) are described from Panama. New host associations are recorded for Ametallon gorgonaense Hansson, Chrysonotomyia auripunctata (Ashmead), Chrysonotomyia galbina Hansson, Chrysonotomyia laeviscuta Hansson, Chrysonotomyia phenacapsia Yoshimoto and Tropicharis cecivora Hansson. All these species belong to the Omphale genus group, and were reared from galls collected in the canopy and understorey of two tropical forests in Panama.
