1 (Hymenoptera: Mymaridae), which is an egg parasitoid that has a great range of host, but above all the Hemiptera (specially from the families Cicadellida, Membracidae, Miridae, Nabidae, and Anthocoridae) and the Odonata (Huber, 1986; Huber et al., 2009).
The introduction of this parasitoid was carried out on February 22 of this year, under the technical responsibility of the DGF and DGSA; constituting the second income of a biological control agent carried out in the framework of institutional cooperation established by the CECOPE, after the introduction of Cleruchoides noackae (Hymenoptera: Mymaridae) for the biological control of the eucalyptus bug, Thaumastocoris peregrinus (Heteroptera: Thaumastocoridae ) in 2013.

The most abundant of these taxonomic groups was Diapriidae (19.1%), followed by Platygastridae (16.3%), Mymaridae (8.7%), Ceraphronidae (7.2%), Phygadeuontinae (Ichneumonidae) (6.6%), and Myrmicinae (Formicidae) (5.9%).

The most abundant parasitoid found by Bambaradeniya and Edirisinghe (2008) in a study of rice in Sri Lanka, for example, was the family Mymaridae (39 %), which attack the insects Nilaparvata lugens (Stal, 1854) and Sogatella furcifera (Horvath, 1899) (Hemiptera: Delphacidae), important pests in that region, different from our work in which this family came fourth in abundance.
