Closterocerus formosus (parasitoid) Westwood, 1833

This wasp is widely distributed and an important larval endoparasitoid of Liriomyza species and other leafminers. It has been further recorded as a significant egg parasitoid of conifer sawflies. Parasitation rates of up to 30% have been reported (e.g. Selfa et al., 2017).
