The Hymenoptera were collected during an inventory of wild-caught Lepidoptera larvae and their parasitoids feeding on Croton floribundus. The Lepidoptera larvae were obtained by direct search on host plants, using an entomological umbrella on shrubs and a white cloth (3,3 m2) extended on the floor under the plants, shaken by a stick, along tracks inside of three preserved forest areas in São Paulo State (Canchim Farm, CPPSE / EMBRAPA, at São Carlos; Cambuhy Farm at Matão; Anchieta Island Forest Reserve at Ubatuba). Sixty species, belonging to families Braconidae, Ichneumonidae, Chalcididae, Encyrtidae, Eulophidae, Perilampidae, Pteromalidae and Bethylidae, were reported; most of them were for the first time associated with C. floribundus. Biological data were obtained and many Lepidoptera and Hymenoptera (both immature and adults) were illustrated.
