Abstract Bracon admotus Papp, 2000, and three species of the genus Habrobracon Ashmead, 1895, Habrobracon concolorans (Marshall, 1900), Habrobracon hebetor (Say, 1836) and Habrobracon pillerianae Fischer, 1980, were obtained from the larvae of Lobesia botrana (Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775) (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae) feeding on Daphne gnidium Linnaeus, 1753 (Thymelaeaceae) in the natural reserve of Migliarino-San Rossore-Massaciuccoli (Pisa-Central Italy). Bracon admotus, Habrobracon concolorans… 

A review of insect parasitoids associated with Lobesia botrana (Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775) in Italy. 1. Diptera Tachinidae and Hymenoptera Braconidae (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae)

Only two species of Tachinidae are associated to EGVM larvae in Italy, Actia pilipennis and Phytomyptera nigrina (Meigen), whereas the record of Eurysthaea scutellaris (Robineau-Desvoidy) is doubtful.

Updated list of the insect parasitoids (Insecta, Hymenoptera) associated with Lobesia botrana (Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775) (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae) in Italy. 2. Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae, Anomaloninae and Campopleginae

Abstract In this second review of the parasitoids recorded on Lobesia botrana (EGVM) in Italy, an updated list and summary of the information available on 14 taxa of Ichneumonidae belonging to the

Parasitoids of Lobesia botrana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in the Douro Demarcated Region vineyards and the prospects for enhancing conservation biological control

Abstract The more restrictive regulations of pesticides in Europe have led to an increase in conservation biological control (CBC) research. However, little attention has been paid to the main

Revalidation of Habrobracon brevicornis stat. rest. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) Based on the CO1, 16S, and 28S Gene Fragments

It remains difficult to discriminate the two species based on morphology data alone, but with molecular data the differentiation is straight forward and an integrative key is provided to distinguish H. hebetor from H. brevicornis.

Back to the Wild: The Parasitoid Community of Lobesia botrana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in a Grapevine-Free Natural Environment

Overall, this research sheds light on the parasitoid community and dynamics of this important moth pest in a grapevine-free natural ecosystem, discussing the possible role of natural areas as ecological reservoirs of pest natural enemies.

New records of Braconinae (Hymenoptera, Braconidae) from South Korea

Two genera (Campyloneurus Szépligeti and Craspedolcus Enderlein) and 31 species of Braconinae are recorded for the first time from South Korea, including one new subspecies (Bracon albion

Identification, Microhabitat, and Ecological Niche Prediction of Two Promising Native Parasitoids of Tuta absoluta in Kenya

This work investigated the most efficient indigenous parasitoids associated with T. absoluta in Kenya and their preferable habitat and ecological niche suitability, and predicted occurrence of parasitoid species indicated vast suitable areas for B. nigricans in sub-Saharan Africa, Australia, and South America.

Lobesia botrana (European grapevine moth).

Abstract Lobesia botrana should be regarded as a potentially serious pest on a worldwide scale for all the vine-growing areas that are presently unaffected. L. botrana could be introduced as

Biological protection against grape berry moths. A review

It is concluded that biological control has a great deal of potential in viticulture and that addressing these key factors would improve the efficiency levels of biological control strategies, and help growers and stakeholders to significantly reduce insecticide use in vineyards.



Note sulla biocenosi in Puglia della Lobesia (Polychrosis) botrana (Schifi.) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) infeudata a Daphne gnidium L.

The biological behaviour of Lobesia botrana on Daphne gnidium is studied and Traps baited with synthetic sex pheromone have been used for studying the flight dynamics of the adults.

The parasites of cereal stem borers (Lepidoptera: Cossidae, Crambidae, Noctuidae, Pyralidae) in Africa, belonging to the family Braconidae (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonoidea)

A review is given of the parasites (parasitoids) of the African cereal stem borers (including introduced species) belonging to the family Braconidae (Hymenoptera); 38 species belonging to 19 genera

Study of the genus Bracon Fabricius, 1804 (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) of Southern Iran with description of a new species.

A survey on the genus Bracon Fabricius, 1804 was conducted in Hormozgan province, Southern Iran, during February 2011-July 2012, of which seven species and the subgenus Asiabracon Tobias, 1957 are recorded for first time from Iran.

Redescriptions of Habrobracon concolorans (Marshall) and Habrobracon crassicornis (Thomson) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Braconinae)

A checklist was compiled for the 21 valid Habrobracon species distributed in the western Palaearctic Region and redescribed and compared with the nearest species H. stabilis and H. crassicornis.

Oviposition and Reproductive Performance of Habrobracon hebetor (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) on Six Different Pyralid Host Species

The studies clearly showed that H. hebetor females can paralyze and lay eggs on several pyralid species, but it cannot necessarily develop and reproduce optimally on all host species that it can paralyzes and parasitize.

Biology and Developmental Strategies of the Palaearctic Parasitoid Bracon nigricans (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) on the Neotropical Moth Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)

Females showed behavioral plasticity in host use, as initial host paralysis was followed by host-feeding, oviposition, or host rejection, with a consequent high mortality rate among hosts exposed to parasitism.

Larval Parasitoids of Lobesia botrana (Denis and Schiffermüller, 1775) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in Orumieh Vineyards

The larval parasitoid complex of Grape Berry Moth (GBM) on vine was identified, and its natural potential in controlling the pest compared for different generations and in different locations in Orumieh during 2004-2006.

A New Species of Bracon (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) Parasitic on Larvae of the Pest Orgyia ericae Germar (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) in Northern China

A new braconid parasitoid of this pest, Bracon (Habrobracon) erduos sp.

Adaptation of Indigenous Larval Parasitoids to Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) in Italy

Preliminary results demonstrated a high suitability of these indigenous natural enemies for controlling T. absoluta in controlled conditions and their role as potential biological agents in commercial tomato plantations.

Indigenous natural enemies attacking Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) in Southern France.

Results represent the first step towards developing biological and integrated management strategies against this pest in France and stress the need of conservation strategies of indigenous natural enemies to control the exotic pest species.
