Fortuitous establishment of Ageniaspis citricola (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae) in Jamaica on the citrus leafminer (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae)
Florida Entomologist 90 (1), 271-273
Abstract: Surveys of Jamaican citrus-growing areas in 2004/05 showed parasitism of the citrus leafminer (Phyllocnistis citrella) by Ageniaspis citricola. No releases of the parasitoid had been made. DNA analysis indicated that the population of A. citricola in Jamaica probably originated from the Australian (Thailand) population. This is consistent with what is currently known about the origin of the established Ageniaspis population in Florida (Alvarez 2000).
