Host discrimination in three ectoparasites (Aphytis coheni, A. lingnanensis and A. melinus) of the oleander scale (Aspidiotus nerii)



Host discrimination in three ectoparasites (Aphytis coheni, A. lingnanensis and A. melinus) of the oleander scale (Aspidiotus nerii)



Netherlands Journal of Zoology 31(3): 504-532



The host-searching and oviposition behaviour of Aphytis coheni DeBach, A. lingnanensis Comp. and A. melinus DeBach, which parasitise diaspidid scale-insects, was studied to obtain information on the ability to distinguish parasitised hosts from unparasitised ones in gregarious parasites.
