Leptopilina Förster, 1869 (Eucoilinae: Figitidae: Cynipoidea) are solitary larval-pupal parasitoids of drosophilid flies, mainly frugivorous species of the genus Drosophila Fallen 1823. The genus is cosmopolitan in distribution, with representations in all major biogeographic realms. Leptopilina species and their hosts are among the best studied host-parasitoid systems.
