Aganaspis pelleranoi (parasitoid) (Brèthes, 1924)

This wasp is native to South and Central America. It is an important solitary koinobiont endoparasitoid of fruit fly larvae (e.g. Anastrepha species and Ceratitis capitata). Parasitation rates of more than 50% have been reported in some hosts. Rearing colonies have been established.

The development from egg to adult is dependent on the temperature and ranges from about 2 months at 18°C to 1 month at 25°C (Gonçalves et al., 2014).
