The biology ofEpidinocarsis (=Apoanagyrus) lopezi (DeSantis) was studied under fluctuating laboratory conditions of 24–31°C and 79–90% R.H. It is a solitary internal parasite. There are 4 tailed larval instars. The total developmental time from egg to adult ranged from 11–25 days, average 18 days. The duration of each developmental stage was: egg 2 days, 1 st instar 1 day, 2nd instar 1 day, 3rd instar 2 days, 4th instar 2 days, prepupa 4 days and pupa 6 days. Males mated several times, females… CONTINUE READING
