Three species belonging to genus Cystocephalus, Schneider 1886 were found parasitizing three coleoptra hosts. Out of 105 Blaps polychresta, only one male was infected with C. algerianus and females were parasites free. Ten percent of examined Pimelia angulata Ten percent of examined Pimelia angulata (n = 30) were infected with the same parasite. Among are one male (5.56%) and 2 females (16.67%). Out of 126 of Trachyderma hispida 6 (4.76%) were parasitized by C. gabei. Only 3 males (5.1%) and 3…
