The study deals with the tachinid parasitoids of Ancyrosoma leucogrammes (Gmelin) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae): Clytiomya dupuisi Kugler, Clytiomya sola (Rondani) and Gymnosoma clavatum (Rohdendorf) (Diptera: Tachinidae). All species are recorded for the first time asparasitoids of A. leucogrammes, and C dupuisi was reared for the first time from a host. The parasitization rates of C dupuisi on adults of A. leucogrammes varied from 7% to 9% between 1994 and 1999. C sola and G. clavatum were reared in only small numbers.
