Abstract

The present study was carried out in Diyarbakır Province (N 37°53’36.96”, E 40°16’13.65”, 666 m) in Southeastern Anatolia Region of Turkey in 2018-2020. Prunus cerasifera tree parts infested by the buprestid beetle, Ptosima undecimmaculata, were cut in June 2018 and February 2019 (Figs. 1-2) and Prunus persica infested by buprestids larvae, Ptosima undecimmaculata (Herbst, 1784) and Sphenoptera (Tropeopeltis) tappesi Marseul, 1865, respecitvely were cut and placed in plastic boxes until host and/or their potential parasitoids were reared. Three ichneumonid parasitoids, Dolichomitus kriechbaumeri (Schulz, 1906), Poemenia notata Holmgren, 1859 and Xorides gravenhorstii (Curtis, 1831), were obtained. New host records were found: P. undecimmaculata for D. kriechbaumeri and S. tappesi for X. gravenhorstii. All three parasitoid species were reared from the studied plants for the first time. P. notata is a new record for Turkish fauna.
