Palmistichus elaeisis (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) parasitizing pupae of Hypsipyla grandella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
Florida Entomologist 96 (3), 1207-1208
Abstract: This is the first report of Palmistichus elaeisis (Delvare and LaSalle) (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae), a generalist pupal parasitoid of Lepidoptera and Coleoptera, parasitizing pupae of Hypsipyla grandella (Zeller) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), a major forest pest in Latin America and the Caribbean. This finding offers new perspectives for the use of parasitoids in biological control programs against pests of mahogany and cedar species in Latin America and the Caribbean.
