Abstract
Trichogramma papilionis (Nagarkatti) was found parasitizing eggs of Darna pallivitta (Moore). This is the first confirmed record of an identified species of Trichogramma attacking Limacodidae eggs. Rates of parasitism and biology of T. papilionis are reported as well as its potential efficacy as a biological control agent in Hawaii. This is also the first record of T. papilionis from the Island of Hawaii.
