Cotesia sesamiae (parasitoid) (Cameron)

The wasp is a gregarious endoparasitoid of stemborer larvae in Africa and was introduced into North America against a new host, the sugarcane stalk borer, Diatraea saccharalis. In Africa it has been mainly reported as a parasitoid of cereal stem borers like Busseola fusca, Sesamia calamistis and Chilo partellus.
