ABSTRACT. Long-term data of 2014–2016 on trophic relations between aphelinid and aphidid flies and aphids on fields located in the territory of Kiev and Cherkassy regions are presented. Hatched from infected aphids aphelinid and aphidid flies are parasitize on three greenfly species. 11 aphelinid species and 40 aphidid species are recorded from Ukraine, namely 20 Aphidiidae species from Kiev region, and 31 species (Aphidiidae — 20, Aphelinidae — 11) from Cherkassy region. According to trophic specialisation, the parasitic flies relate topolyphages (43%), narrow (28%) and wide (18%) oligophages and monophages (11%).

KEY WORDS: riders, interspecific populations, cereal aphids, Kievskaya oblast, Cherkasskaya Oblast, trophic connections, winter wheat.
