Behavior and host location cues of Apocephalus paraponerae (Diptera: Phoridae), a parasitoid of the giant tropical ant, Paraponera clavata (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
Apocephalus paraponerae is a parasitoid of injured workers of Paraponera clavata. Adult males are attracted to prospective hosts to feed, and females to feed and oviposit.
