Parasitoids thus differ from true predators, which have free-living larval stages and nonnally require more than one prey item to complete their development. As a group, insect parasitoids make up at least 14% of the one million or so known insect species Species diversity is greatest in the Hymenoptera, with over 200,000 species, and in certain dipteran families such as… CONTINUE READING
