Introduction to Venezuela and biology of Cotesia plutellae Kurdj. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), parasitoid of Plutella xylostella L. (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae)

Introduction to Venezuela and biology of Cotesia plutellae Kurdj. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), parasitoid of Plutella xylostella L. (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae)

Parasitized larvae of Plutella xylostella and cocoons with solitary larvae of the parasitoid Cotesia plutellae were collected from cabbages in Trinidad and kept in the laboratory where the biology of the parasitoid was studied, with a view to introducing the parasitoid into Venezuela. A total of 17 males and 23 females of the parasitoid and 6 males of the chalcidid hyperparasitoid Ceratosmicra flavescens emerged from 73 cocoons of the pest.
