Observations of parasitism of Tetrapriocera longicornis (Oliver, 1795) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae: Bostrichinae) by Acrophasmus sp. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Doryctinae) are described. This is the first record of a species of the Acrophasmus genera parasitizing woodboring T. longicornis. Interesting facts about the biology and ecology of these two species of insects are also given, as well as the relationship between T. longicornis and its host plant in Panama.
