A new species of Chlorops near melleus Loew was reared from a gall-like growth on the stems of a grass, Aristida gyrans Chapman, in south Florida. This is a new host genus record for the grass-infesting flies. The rearing of Eurytoma n. sp. from the genus Chlorops is the first known record of any eurytomid from Chlorops. A single female of a probable new genus of the family Eurytomidae was also reared from C. near melleus.
