Host suitability and its effects on parasitoid biology in Coccygomimus turionellae (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae)



Host suitability and its effects on parasitoid biology in Coccygomimus turionellae (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae)



Annals of the Entomological Society of America, 753: 217-221



The progeny of C. turionellae (L.) varied significantly in size and development time when reared on 5 lepidopteran host species. Regression analysis revealed that factors other than host weight affected parasitoid development. Within a particular host species, parasitoid size and development time were highly correlated to host weight. The age of the host also influenced its suitability; larval instars did not permit parasitoid development, but the late prepupae were 50% as effective as the pupae. A significant negative linear relationship existed between host age and parasitoid size within the pupal stadium. The relationship between the parasitoid's developmental period and its size broke down when host age increased, indicating a relative increase in development period per unit weight with increased host age.
