Biology and rearing of the fruit fly parasitoid Biosteres arisanus: clues to insectary propagation
Aspects of Biosteres arisanus (Sonan) (=Opius oophilus Fullaway) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) development on the oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera (=Dacus) dorsalis (Hendel), were investigated toExpand

Virus-like particles from the poison glands of the parasitic wasp Biosteres longicaudatus (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)
Two virus-like particles occur in the venom apparatus (poison glands) associated with the ovaries of the parasitic wasp Biosteres longicaudatus (Hymenoptera: Braconidae). The venom apparatus consistsExpand

Host vibration — A cue to host location by the parasite, Biosteres longicaudatus
SummaryBiosteres longicaudatus Ashmead (Hymenoptera: Bracon dae) is a solitary endoparasite of Anastrepha suspensa larvae (Diptera: Tephritidae), which live in fruit tissue. Larvae make andibleExpand

Host-parasite hormonal interactions: An overview
Abstract Parasite interactions with their hosts appear to fall into two major categories: (1) “conformers” and (2) “regulators”. While species in both categories synchronize their life cyclesExpand

Transmission of the Diachasmimorpha longicaudata rhabdovirus (DlRhV) to wasp offspring: an ultrastructural analysis.
During oviposition, the parasitic wasp Diachasmimorpha longicaudata introduces an entomopoxvirus (DlEPV) and a rhabdovirus (DlRhV) into larvae of its tephritid fruit fly host Anastrepha suspensa.Expand
