This study was carried out to determine the functional response of Oenopia conglobata (L.) to Hyalopterus pruni (Geoffroy) in petri dishes of 6, 8 and 12 cm diameters and at 20, 40, 80, 160 and 320 prey densities. Experiments were carried out in a climate chamber set at 25 [plus or minus] 1 [degree]C, 65 [plus or minus] 5 % RH and 16:8 (I.:D) h photoperiod. Consumption by all larval instars of O. conglobata increased with increasing prey densities up to 80 in petri dishes of 6, 8 and 12 cm diameters. A further increase in prey density (to 160 and 320 aphids) did not result in higher prey consumption for all larval stages. The daily food consumption by adult females of O. conglobata in all petri dishes increased with increasing prey densities. Increasing petri dish diameters did not affect prey consumption by all larval stages and adults of O. conglobata. Handling time decreased linearly as life stages developed. Handling time according to life stage was significantly different, but differences between 3rd and 4th instar larvae were not significant. Handling time did not affect by petri dish diameters. Search rate according to life stage was significantly different but no differences occurred among 2nd, 3rd and 4th instar larvae. Search rate decreased as life stage developed but increased when petri dish diameters increased.
