Abstract: The citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, is one of the most important pests infesting citrus and also the vector of citrus Huanglongbing disease, Candidatus Liberi bacterasiaticus, and thus threating the citrus industry in China. Therefore, further surveys and identification of parasitoid wasps of D. citri are of great importance in screening elite natural enemies for field application. Two species of primary parasitoid wasps, Tamarixia radiate (Waterston) and Diaphorencyrtus aligarhensis (Shafee, Alam et Argarwal), and 4 species of hyperparasitoid wasps, Tamarixia micromacula Wang et Huang, sp.n. (Eulophidae), Chartocerus walkeri Hayat, Psyllaphycus diaphorinae Hayat (new record of genus and species from China) and Encarsia sp. ♂ were identified. The morphological charateristics and occurrence of the parasitoid wasps were briefly recorded, a new hyperparasitoid wasp was described, and photographs of the parasitoid wasps were provided. The type specimens and other materials were deposited in College of Plant Protection, Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University.
