Abstract

MARCHIORI, Carlos H. Parasitoids of Chrysomya megacephala (Fabricius) collected in Itumbiara, Goias, Brazil. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 2004, vol.38, n.2, pp. 323-325. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89102004000200024.

This study determined the species of parasitoids associated with Chrysomya megacephala, collected on bovine kidney baits, in Itumbiara, State of Goias, Brazil. The pupae were obtained by flotation. They were individually placed in gelatin capsules until the emergence of the adult flies or their parasitoids. The overall prevalence of parasitism was 18.6%. Brachymeria podagrica, Nasonia vitripennis and Pachycrepoideus vindemiae presented frequencies of 8.6%, 8.6% and 1.4%, respectively. This work reports for the first time the occurrence of Brachymeria podagrica in pupae of Chrysomya megacephala.
