Psyllaephagus trioziphagus (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae), a Mastigimas anjosi parasitoid (Hemiptera: Calophyidae)

Psyllaephagus trioziphagus (Howard, 1885) was first observed feeding from Mastigimas anjosi Burckhardt et al., 2011 immatures, with just one parasitoid on each insect. This parasitoid was previously reported from Canada to Brazil. Although it is not host-specific, it may be a useful agent to control...

Abstract: Psyllaephagus trioziphagus (Howard, 1885) was first observed feeding from Mastigimas anjosi Burckhardt et al., 2011 immatures, with just one parasitoid on each insect. This parasitoid was previously reported from Canada to Brazil. Although it is not host-specific, it may be a useful agent to control M. anjosi in Brazil.
Translated abstract: Psyllaephagus trioziphagus (Howard, 1885) foi observado pela primeira vez parasitando imaturos de Mastigimas anjosi Burckhardt et al., 2011, com apenas um parasitoide em cada imaturo. Este parasitoide foi previamente reportado desde o Canadá até o Brasil. Apesar de não ser hospedeiro específico, pode representar um agente útil no controle de M. anjosi no Brasil.
