The reproductive tract of the parasitoidMicroctonus hyperodae was found to comprise 6.1±0.2 ovarioles containing a total of 40–60 oöcytes. After oviposition into its hostListronotus bonariensis, the parasitoid's egg volume increased by 205 times prior to hatching. At 19.1°C ovipositingM. hyperodae survived for a mean 21±4 days and laid a mean of 48±8 eggs.M. hyperodae collected from Colonia, Uruguay laid a mean of 62±15 eggs which was significantly more than the other ecotypes. Under caging… CONTINUE READING
