Apanteles polychrosidis (parasitoid) Viereck 1912

This wasp is found in North America, where it parasitises the caterpillars of various Lepidoptera species, mainly from the family Tortricidae (e.g. see Cossentine et al., 2005 or Wist & Evenden, 2013). It can reach high rates of parasitization on some hosts (Cossentine, 2008).
