Four parasitoids of the subfamily Euphorinae are common in New Zealand pasture. These are Microctonus aethiopoides, M. hyperodae, M. zealandicus and Dinocampus coccinellae. There is overlap in these parasitoids' host ranges and, although adults of these species can be identified morphologically, their larval stages have not yet been compared. This contribution provides morphological descriptions of the head capsules of 1st instar larvae that enable the four parasitoid species to be… CONTINUE READING
