Legs yellow, all coxae dark, metafemur brown. Clava as long as 4 flagellar segments. Scape as long as the first two flagellar segments. Flagellar segments 1 – 2 as long as wide (slightly longer than wide), 3 – 5 square, flagellar segment 6 slightly wider than long. Ocelli form a right triangle. The specimens match the description by Hoffer (1963) and Trjapitzin (1989).

Comments. New record for Serbia.

Psyllaephagus belanensis  was reared from Heterotrioza chenopodii  from Atriplex oblongifolia  , while in the literature it was recorded from Eumetoecus kochiae (Noeys 2017)  and Diaphorina citri Kuwayama ( Fallahzadeh et al. 2016)  . Here, Psyllaephagus belanensis  is recorded in association with Heterotrioza chenopodii  for the first time ( Table 2).
