Braconid wasps, Cotesia plutellae (Kurdjumov), were collected from parasitized host larvae of diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) in Korea. Virus particles were found in the oviduct lumen of C. plutellae females. Multiple nucleocapsids with approximately 30-nm diameter and variable length (30-80 nm) were surrounded with a single unit membrane envelope. The parasitization of C. plutellae completely inhibited pupal metamorphosis. The parasitized larvae showed significant decrease in… CONTINUE READING
