Distribution and host range.

Colastes  Haliday, 1833 is a cosmopolitan genus represented in Europe by 15 species, which are, as all the members of the subfamily, idiobiont ectophagous solitary parasitoids on larvae of several leafminers ( Shaw and Huddleston 1991). Only one specimen was obtained from the first generation larvae of EGVM in Piedmont.
