Parasites associated with leucaena psyllid, Heteropsylla cubana Crawford, in Hawaii






Proceedings of the Hawaiian Entomological Society No. 30: 155-156

Parasites associated with leucaena psyllid, Heteropsylla cubana Crawford, in Hawaii

Four species of parasitoids were reared from Heteropsylla cubana collected in Hawaii. In addition to the purposely introduced primary parasitoid Psyllaephagus yaseeni (for the biological control of H. cubana), Pachyneuron siphonophorae, Syrphophagus aphidivorus and Syrphophagus sp. were also reared.
