Tachinid parasitoids of Traumatocampa ispartaensis Doganlar & Avci (Lepidoptera, Thaumetopoeidae), which was found to be a new species, were collected from the cedar forests around Isparta-Kapidag. The species found were Blondelia nigripes (Fall.), Compsilura concinnata (Meig.), Pales processioneae (Ratz.), Phryxe caudata (Rond.), Exorista segregata (Rond.) and Carcelia iliaca (Ratz.). Within the six species of Tachinidae, B. nigripes was the most common one, parasitizing up to 4.6% of T. ispartaensis pupae.
