Abstract. Surgical removal and larval transplantation experiments were carried out to evaluate behavioral manipulative effects caused by larvae of the polysphinctine ichneumonid, Reclinervellus nielseni (Roman, 1923), on its orb-weaving spider host, Cyclosa argenteoalba Bösenberg & Strand, 1906 (Araneidae). Residual behavioral effects on spiders from which parasitoid larvae had been removed were recognized and are described. Some transplanted parasitoid larvae also successfully consumed… Expand
