Abstract
The chalcidoid family Eulophidae is primarily entomophagous. However, the family includes a fairly large number of species, particularly in the Tetrastichinae, that are phytophagous, mostly as gall-formers and stem-borers. One such wasp, a possibly undescribed species in the large genus Aprostocetus Westwood, was recently found established on Oahu; a new state record.
