Cotesia is a genus of Braconid wasps. Some species parasitize caterpillars of species considered as pests. Thus they are used as biocontrol agents. Cotesia. — Florida Entomologist — Volume , No. 4. Cotesia flavipes ( Hymenoptera: Braconidae) as a biological control agent of sugarcane stem borers in. Summary. Releases of the parasitoid Cotesia flavipes have been carried out since late in Colombia’s Cauca River Valley to complement other biological .

A low-level genetic inbreeding depression is naturally expected in inbred populations because the wide expression of deleterious alleles allows for the elimination of these genes from the population [ 23 ].

The effects of the different parasitoid populations were analyzed using the repeated measures procedure for an analysis of variance ANOVA; Proc Mixed.

No significant differences across generations for the same population were observed. Revista Peruana de Entomologia, 23 cotesja Laboratory studies on superparasitism in Apanteles flavipes Cameron and Apanteles chilonis Munakata Braconidae: One of the biggest obstacles to quality control is the detection of loss of genetic variability in insects reared in large quantities.

Tagawa J, Kitano H. In the current Brazilian situation, populations were founded by a small group of individuals with no further reports of wild strains being introduced.

Although the parasitoid has proven effective in controlling the borer, currently there is concern regarding the quality of mass-produced parasitoids [ falvipes11 ]. Studies on natural enemies of the spotted stem borer Chilo partellus Swinhoe. After forty years since the beginning of the biological control program with C.


We found no increase in the proportion of males over 10 generations of C. Braconidaelarval parasitoids of stemborers on graminae. We flavupes to determine what happened to the quality of the parasitoid after 10 generations in an extreme inbreeding situation.
