Host marking: source of a substance that results in host discrimination in insect parasitoids



Host marking: source of a substance that results in host discrimination in insect parasitoids



Entomophaga 17(2): 241-245



It was demonstrated in the laboratory that females of Cardiochiles nigriceps Vier. and Microplitis croceipes (Cress.), two species that parasitise larvae of Heliothis direscens (F.), are able to distinguish between non-parasitised host larvae and those that already contain several eggs of their own species.
