Abstract: Parasitoids of adult corn leafhoppers, Dalbulus maidis (DeLong et Wolcott), were studied in irrigated maize (Gramineae) growing during the dry season in Mexico. Dalbulus maidis was parasitized by Metadorylas spinosus (Hardy) (Diptera: Pipunculidae), Halictophagus naulti Kathirithamby et Moya-Raygoza (Strepsiptera: Halictophagidae), and Gonatopus bartletti Olmi (Hymenoptera: Dryinidae) at 24 of the 54 sites where D. maidis were collected. Greater rates of parasitism occurred at higher elevations (R2 = 0.41) and at more southern latitudes (R2 = -0.52). Metadorylas spinosus is a previously unreported parasitoid of D. maidis, and this is the first report of H. naulti parasitizing Dalbulus elimatus (Ball) and Dalbulus gelbus DeLong. Gonatopus bartletti has the broadest geographic and temporal distribution of the parasitoids found.
