Hosts. Cicadellidae ( Guglielmino et al. 2013)  : in Namibia: Aconurella compta (Naudé)  ; Exitianus nanus (Distant)  and E. okahandia Ross. 

Distribution. Cape Verde Islands, Kenya, Namibia, Niger, Senegal, South Africa.

Remarks. The leafhopppers captured in Namibia and parasitized by P. paulyi  possessed a single large black thylacium situated dorsally between the head and the pronotum ( Fig. 81AView FIGURE 81). Based on the presence of a proximal inner branch wrapping the aedeagus, the ♂ of this species is very similar to Deinodryinus tussaci Olmi  from Morocco. However, the distal part of 2r-rs&Rs vein is shorter in D. tussaci  than in D. paulyi  .
