The natural enemies of the pentatomid Tessaratoma papillosa were surveyed in longan orchards in Thailand during 1981-84. Two species of egg parasitoids, an Anastatus species near A. japonicus and Ooencyrtus phongi were important biological control agents. The highest recorded parasitism of pentatomid eggs by these 2 species was 47.78% (in 1981) and 59.41% (in 1982), respectively.
