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). Manejo Integrado de Plagas ( 29): 24-27

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.

Many taxa used in biological control may be composed of several population units reproductively isolated to various degrees. Yet, the introductions of non-compatible populations may result in a depression of intended biological control. Cotesia pl...

A maximum larval density of 9.3 larvae per plant was recorded in Kinkei 201 field. In contrast, the c...
