Entomo!. 26(5): 1149-1154 (1997) ABSTRACT Pselldacteon phorids that parasitize the red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta Buren, inSouthAmericaare not present in the introduced range ofthispest speciesin the United States. Sequential host specificity tests were conducted with 4 South American Pselldacteon species, P. litoralis Borgmeier, P. wasmanni (Schmitz), P. triCllspis Borgmeier, and P. curvatlls Borgmeier, to investigate the degree to which these species attack the native… CONTINUE READING
