We report for the first time the occurrence of the well-known Eurasian and north African
parasitoid Cotesia vanessae (Reinhard) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) in North America. Specimens
were reared from Chrysodeixis chalcites (Esper) and Trichoplusia ni (Hübner) (Lepidoptera:
Noctuidae) recovered from several locations in southwestern Ontario, Canada, and detected by
DNA sequencing from one Autographa californica (Speyer) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in southern
Alberta, Canada.
