Seasonal activity of species of Pseudacteon (Diptera: Phoridae) parasitoids of fire ant (Solenopsis saevissima) (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Brazil

ISSN/ISBN: 0100-0039

The seasonal activity of the complex of species of the parasitoid phorid taxa Pseudacteon attacking colonies of S. saevissima in Sao Paulo, Brazil, is documented. The seasonally most constant as well as the most abundant species were P. tricuspis and P. litoralis, with the remaining species (P. obtusus, P. pradei, P. aduncus and P. wasmanni) being much less abundant and consequently less seasonally constant.
