Abstract: [Objectives]  To determine the potential of the parasitoid Coccophagus japonicus Compere as a biological control for Parasaissetia nigra Nietner. [Methods]  The functional responses of C. japonicus to the 3rd instar of P. nigra were studied at 18, 21, 24, 27, 30 and 33 ℃, respectively, and the effect of intra-specific competition on the predatory efficiency of C. japonicus was also studied at 27 ℃. [Results]  The functional responses of C. japonicus to the 3rd instar of P. nigra conformed to the Holling II and Holling-Ⅲ equations, but the parameters of the functional response varied with temperature. In the range of 18 to 33 ℃, parasitic efficiency, which was evaluated by the ratio of instantaneous attack rate to handing time (a¢/Th), was highest (53.86) at 24 ℃. Intra-specific competition between individuals of C. japonicus increased with density. Parasitism under different densities of C. japonicus at 27 ℃ could be modelled by the Hassell equation (E = QP-m). [Conclusion]  C. japonicus has the potential to be an effective biological control for the 3rd instar of P. nigra.
