Effect of variable photoperiod on development and survival of Cirrospilus sp. nr. lyncus (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae), an ectoparasitoid of Phyllocnistis citrella (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae)
Florida Entomologist 84 (2), 305-307
Abstract: No differences could be observed neither in development times nor on survival of C. sp. near lyncus exposed to three different photoperiods: 16:8; 12:12 and 8:16 (L:D).Therefore, conservation tactics aimed at favoring the winter permanence of this species in citrus orchards could increase the impact of this opportunistic parasitoid on its host P. citrella.
