The study of the family Encyrtidae at the Natural History Museum of Oslo continues. 13 species are reported for the first time from Norway in this revision, bringing the total number of Norwegian encyrtids up to 136. Comments on the biology and distribution for these species are given. The two species Anagyrus galinae (Myartseva, 1982) and Blastothrix hissarica Sugonjaev, 1972 are reported for the first time from Europe. The aim of this study is to highlight the distribution of the family in Norway and to provide a complete list of the Norwegian species.
