Abstract: A new genus of Mymaridae, Kikiki Huber and Beardsley, is described from the Hawaiian Islands and characterized by the following diagnostic combination: body length at most about 300 µm; female antenna with four funicle and two claval segments; forewing venation about 0.7 times wing length; and tarsi apparently three–segmented, with a long pretarsus. The type species, Kikiki huna Huber (type locality: Mapulehu near Ililiopae Heiau, Molokai I.), is described from eight slide mounted females. Generic relationships of Kikiki are briefly discussed.
