The endoparasitic wasps (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), Microplitis croceipes (specialist), and Cotesia marginiventris (generalist) are parasitoids of lepidopteran larvae that differ in their degree of host specificity. Previous studies by our group have reported key differences in the response of both parasitoids to host-related volatiles. To possibly understand the basis for our results, we compared the abundance of antennal sensilla in both sexes of both parasitoid species using scanning electron… CONTINUE READING
