Abstract

Hymenopterous parasites of Rhyacionia spp. (Lepidoptera: Olethreutidae) in Florida.

Abstract

In this note, Bracon gemmaecola (Cushm.) and six unnamed species of Hymenoptera are reported to have been reared from larvae and pupae of Rhyacionia subtropica Miller and R. frustrana (Comst.) collected from terminal shoots of Pinus elliottii var. elliottii in Florida in 1971. The six species recovered from R. subtropica are the first parasites recorded for the moth.
