Trichopria drosophilae is a cosmopolitan pupal parasitoid that attacks many species of Drosophilidae, including the invasive Drosophila suzukii. This study reports on the life-history traits and host preferences of a Californian population of T. drosophilae and compares its life-time fecundity with a South Korean population of T. drosophilae. Female parasitoids emerge with a high mature egg-load (47.6 ± 2.3 eggs per female). The number of mature eggs of female T. drosophilae was affected by the… CONTINUE READING
