Abstract: Parasitization instar and localization of the larval sac are indicated for several cicadellids parasitized by dryinids and collected on their host plants. The behaviours of the anteonini Anteon jurineanum, A. flavicorne, and A. infectum are reported during the parasitization, respectively, of the macropsine Oncopsis flavicollis, the idiocerine Tremulicerus vitreus, and the iassine Iassus lanio under laboratory conditions. The developmental times of the larvae of A. flavicorne on T. vitreus and A. infectum on I. lanio are given, together with the times of predation and egglaying of A. favicorne. The behaviour of seven pairs of A. favicorne during the mating activity is described.
