[The parasitoids found associated with Tephritis conura (Loew) in Sweden all belong to Hymenoptera Chalcidoidea. They are Pteromalus caudiger (Graham) (Pteromalidae), Eurytoma tibialis Boheman (Eurytomidae) and Crataepus marbis (Walker) (Eulophidae). Some descriptive remarks are given on the adult P. caudiger female and the last instar larva of E. tibialis. The last instar larvae of P. caudiger and C. marbis are described., The genus Hovaxylota Keiser includes the following species groups and species: uluguruensis group: H. uluguruensis Hippa (Tanzania) and H. neavei Hippa (Malawi); vulcana group: H. vulcana Hippa (Kenya) and H. perarmata sp. n. (Kenya) ; and selosa group: H. hancocki (Curran) (Uganda, Zaire, Cameroon), H. mimica (Hull) (Madagascar), H. satyrus Keiser = H. rufipedoides Keiser, syn. n. (Madagascar), H. planiformis (Hull) = H. malagasya Keiser, syn. n. (Madagascar), and H. setosa Keiser (Madagascar). Setosa and vulcana groups are sisters and uluguruensis group is their common sister. The genus arose in continental Africa and, rather recently and only once invaded Madagascar. A key to the species is presented. New diagnostic characters for distinguishing the females of Hovaxylota from those of its sister genus Xylota Meigen are given.]
