Effect of host (Pyrilla perpusilla Walker) age on the biology of Epiricania melanoleuca (Fletcher)

Effect of host (Pyrilla perpusilla Walker) age on the biology of Epiricania melanoleuca (Fletcher)

Journal of Insect Science, 42: 160-162

Epiricania melanoleuca was reared on larvae and adults of Pyrilla perpusilla in the laboratory. The age of the host larvae or adults when they were first parasitised by E. melanoleuca had no statistically significant effects on the larval or pupal periods (13.8-16.8 and 6.6-7.6 days, resp.) of the parasitoid. Successful pupation was reduced when the hosts were 5-day-old larvae (22.4%) rather than 10- to 30-day-old larvae (48.5-71.3%) or adults (63.4-73.3%).
