Abstract Parasitism by Microplitis croceipes of the corn earworm, Heliothis zea , resulted in a marked decrease in the rate of growth, especially among larvae parasitized in the early instars. The factor(s) responsible for the initial reduction in growth rate is located in the calyx fluid of the parasite. Also, rates of respiration were significantly reduced by parasitism.
