ABSTRACT In this work it was necessary to determine the species of insects associated with Drimys winteri Forst. (canelo) at two locations of La Araucania. One corresponds to a rural sector (Sector Comuy), and another city (Temuco). In each sector were elected three trees to collect samples. The experimental design used in this research plots corresponded to completely at random, choosing three units show with a total of eight different dates in the 2006 season. The results of the sampling helped identify as new records for La Araucania the following species: Trialeurodes unadutus (Hemiptera, Aleyrodidae); Haeliothrips haemorhoidalis (Thysanoptera, Thripidae) and Hemiberlesia rapax (Hemiptera, Diaspididae). In addition, there was a winder lepidopterous leaves, but his determination was not possible because there was only damage caused in the leaf. Both areas were the same species but with differences in the averages and the relative abundance.
