Many British torymids oviposit through plant tissue, usually into galls or developing seeds, but some oviposit into pupae concealed in silk or plant tissue. Torymid larvae may be entomophagous or, less commonly, phytophagous; some may even be both, feeding in turn on gall maker and gall tissue as in some Eurytomidae.
A total of 111 Torymidae are recorded in Britain and Ireland, slthough only 1 of these is recorded as a parasitoid of a British miner
otherwise stated, all parasitoid / host miner associations of Chalcidoidea
are extracted from the Universal Chalcidoidea Database by Dr John
a chalcidoid name will search the database and return
the synonymy, taxonomy, distribution, associates (both host plants
and host insects), biology, economic references and images of that
on a miner host name will open that species page on this website.
