Larval parasitoids of Lilioceris lilii (Coleoptera:Chrysomelidae) in Sweden and potential for biological control
Biocontrol Science and Technology 19 (3), 335-339
Abstract: A survey of the parasitoid complex of lily leaf beetle (Lilioceris lilii) was conducted in Sweden from 2006 to 2007. Total parasitism varied between 21 and 57%. The most abundant parasitoids were the ichneumonids Lemophagus errabundus and L. pulcher and the eulophid Tetrastichus setifer. The potential for biological control is discussed.
