The phenomenon of adult-parasitism by the euphorine Braconidae is characterized and discussed. Hypotheses regarding the evolution of adult-parasitism are outlined. It is suggested that adultparasitism arose from ancestors that were koinobiont larval-larval parasitoids, but never from idiobiosis directly, because koinobionts evolved rapid oviposition behavior necessary as a pre-adaptation for attacking mobile adult insects. Adult parasitoids are shown to have a unique combination of koinobiont… CONTINUE READING
