Abstract
Since it is believed that this is the second record of Epipyropidae from Africa, the following biological notes, though very incomplete, should be of interest. I have found the Epipyropid, which Mr. W. H. T. Tams of the British Museum (Natural History) has described as Fulgoraecia cerolestes sp. parasitizing two species of Metaphaena-M. cruentata Gerstaecker which occurs on the introduced tree Grevillea robusta, and M. militaris Gerstaecker which I have only seen on a species of Entandophragma, a tree indigenous but uncommon in the Amani forest. Most of these observations refer to parasites on Metaphaena cruentata.
