Abstract

A new encyrtid species, Prionomastix orientalis sp. nov. (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea: Encyrtidae), is described from Arunachal Pradesh, India. This is only the second species of Prionomastix reported from India and markedly differs from P. siccarius Annecke, the other species known from India.  Morphological features of the new species are illustrated and compared with related species.
