Description of immature stages of a species of Glyptapanteles (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a gregarious endoparasitoid of Amata passalis (Fabricius) (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae), a defoliator of sandalwood, Santalum album L


, : Description of immature stages of a species of Glyptapanteles (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a gregarious endoparasitoid of Amata passalis (Fabricius) (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae), a defoliator of sandalwood, Santalum album L. Insect Science and its Application. April; 152: 161-165

The morphology of immature stages of a species of Glyptapanteles was studied. Measurements of the egg, larval and pupal stages are presented. The head sclerites of the three larval instars are also described.
