, : Inventory of parasitic organisms of the striped grass looper, Mocis latipes (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), in Honduras. Florida Entomologist 75(4): 592-598

An inventory and biological information are given for 31 species parasitizing the 4 stages of Mocis latipes on Digitaria sp., Eclipta alba, Cynodon dactylon, Panicum maximum, maize, sorghum and rice in south-central Honduras during 1988-91. Twenty-one natural enemies are reported from M. latipes for the 1st time. Predominant species were Sarcodexia sternodontis, Chetogena sp., Lespesia parviteres, Patelloa sp., Rogas nigristemmaticum and Trichogramma pretiosum.
