Host preferences in some pentatomids and related impact on the fecundity of their parasitoids



Host preferences in some pentatomids and related impact on the fecundity of their parasitoids



Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences, Animal Sciences 96(3): 281-291



The host preferences of the pentatomids Acrosternum gramineum and Agonoscelis nubilis and their parasitoids, the scelionids Gryon sp. and Telenomus lucullus, were tested. The intrinsic rates of increase for the parasitoids were 0.2810 and 0.3640/female per day, respectively. Gryon sp. was more efficient because more than one female could parasitize a host egg mass simultaneously, this not being the case for T. lucullus.
