The mymarid Gonatocerus litoralis (Haliday) is recorded for the first time as an egg parasitoid of the leafhopper Anoplotettix putoni Ribaut. A study of the main morphological characters shows unusual variation in distribution of the multiporous plate sensilla on the antenna and relative length of the ovipositor. The parasitoid overwinters as an immature within the host egg and the adult emerges from late April to early July, which coincides with oviposition by the leafhopper into grapevine bark.
