  • 1. Experiments have been conducted to determine the extrinsic factors that cause facultative diapause in two parasitic chalcid wasps, Mormoniella vitripennis and Tritneptis klugii , and to analyse the mechanism of diapause termination. 2. In both species diapause occurs in the last larval instar after the feeding period has ended and just prior to defaecation. The diagnostic feature of the diapausing larva is that it does not immediately moult into a pupa. 3. In Mormoniella exposing females to… CONTINUE READING
