From pieces of olive tree leaves with only egg clusters of Macrolenes dentipes (Olivier) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), specimens of the trichogrammatid Bloodiella andalusiaca Nowicki (1935) emerged. This is the first record for the genus and the species from Italy. The original description of B. andalusiaca is reviewed and new characters are added. Hosts of this egg parasitoid are unknown, but our observations suggest that M. dentipes is a very possible candidate.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
