Leafminer and parasitoid community of the Nature Reserve “Bosco d’Alcamo” (Sicily). The leafminer and parasitoid communities of the Nature Reserve “Bosco D’Alcamo” was studied on 16 spontaneous plants. 17 Lepidoptera and 7 Diptera species were detected. About 20 parasitoid species emerged mainly represented by Eulophidae and Braconidae. The presence in Sicily of the Gracillariidae Phyllonorycter trifasciella Haworth was confirmed, as well as that of Eulophidae Derostenus gemmeus Westwood. Sympiesis notata (Zetterstedt) and Cirrospilus viticola (Rondani) were recorded for the first time as parasitoid of Emmetia marginea (Haworth). S. notata was record- ed also as a new parasitoid of P. trifasciella. The important role of natural woods, especially oaks, as reservoir of entomofauna and biodiversity was confirmed.
