ABSTRACT
The article assesses the ranges of three parasitoids, Enoggera (E.) nassaui, Neopolycystus (N.) insectifurax, and Baeoanusia (B.) albifunicle, associated with the control of the eucalypt tortoise beetle, Paropsis charybdis, by conducting field surveys in South Island, New Zealand. The Paropsis charybdis, an introduced Australian species, is the most important defoliator of eucalypt species in the country. Both N. insectifurax and B. albifunicle were recorded for the first time in Northland. The researchers concluded that it is unlikely that either species is limited by climate.
