Gonatopus flavoniger Olmi, 1991, is newly recorded from state of Paraná, Brazil. This record is based on a female specimen reared from a nymph of a leafhopper (Cicadellidae, Deltocephalinae, Athysanini), and one additional female collected by sweeping from the same locality. The species is illustrated and characterized morphologically. Some aspects of its biology are treated: host identification and the location of the dryinid larva in the host, the construction of the cocoon, and duration of pupa phase until emergence of the adult.
