Natural enemies of Marucavitrata (Geyer) feeding concealed inside leafwhorls of a green manure legume, Sesbaniacannabina, were monitored during the 1996 and1997 summer seasons in Taiwan. A braconid,Apanteles taragamae, accounted for anaverage of 92% of all parasitoid specimensreared from M. vitrata larvae and pupae.Other parasitoid species included two otherbraconids: Bassus asper and Dolichogenidea sp., three ichneumonids: Trichomma sp., Triclistus sp., and Plectochorus sp., and two… CONTINUE READING
