A check-list of the Chalcidoidea of Socotra Island based on published data and newly collected material is presented. The male of the endemic species Leucospis insularis Kirby, 1900 (Leucospidae) is described for the first time. The following five species are recorded from the Socotra Island for the first time: Eupelmus orientalis (Crawford, 1913) (Eupelmidae); Cryptoprymna atra (Walker, 1833), Cyrtoptyx latipes (Rondani, 1874), Dinarmoides spilopterus Masi, 1924 (all Pteromalidae); and Torymoides kiesenwetteri (Mayr, 1874) (Torymidae). Altogether 11 species from five families are currently known from Socotra, four species of which are considered to be endemic to the island.
