Courtship and mating behaviour of chalcidoid wasp s is species-characteristic. Inter-actions between conspecific males in competition for inseminable females were observed in the laboratory. We have distinguished six types of interaction. Examples of each type are d escribed and discussed. Some speculation is offered about the conditions under which these types are believed to operate in the field.
