ABSTRACT
The objective of this survey was to record the occurrence of Trichogramma parasitoids in areas cultivated with corn in Espirito Santo, Brazil. Sheets of cardboard with eggs of Anagasta kuehniella (Zeller) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) were distributed in field at Vargem Alta, where they were exposed to parasitism for three days. The cards were brought to the Laboratory of Entomology of CCA-UFES, where, after emergence, the males were separated and sent to identification, which proved them to be Trichogramma exiguum Pinto & Platner (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae).
