Cotesia glomerata (parasitoid) (Linnaeus)
The species is an important gregarious endoparasitoid of Pieris brassicae and related species. It was introduced into North America in the 1880s against this pest but probably contributed to the decline of the native Pieris oleracea. Between 10 and 50 eggs are laid inside a host larva.
