A survey of egg parasitoids of the leafhopper Homalodisca coagulata was conducted in California, Florida and Louisiana. The mymarid wasp Gonatocerus ashmeadi was found to be the most common natural enemy in all locations sampled; G. fasciatus and the trichogrammatid Zagella sp. are recognized as potential biological control agents for introduction into southern California.
