(Florida Entomologist, 2012-06-01) [Artigo]
Palmistichus elaeisis (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) parasitizing pupae of Citioica anthonilis (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) collected on Piptadenia gonoacantha (Fabaceae)
(Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society, 2012-11-19) [Artigo]
The moth Citioica anthonilis (Herrich-Schaeffer, ) (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae: Ceratocampinae) occurs in areas of preserved forests, where it is a significant defoliator of Piptadenia gonoacantha (Martins) Macbride ...
Production and Use of Heteroptera Predators for the Biological Control of Eucalyptus Pests in Brazil
(Ekoloji, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
The Asopinae predators of Eucalyptus spp. (Myrtaceae) pests in Brazil include Brontocoris tabidus, Podisus distinctus, Podisus nigrispinus, and Supputius cincticeps (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae). These insects feed on the ...
Evaluation of Trichospilus diatraeae (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) as parasitoid of the eucalyptus defoliator Eupseudosoma aberrans Schaus, 1905 (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae)
(Biocontrol Science and Technology, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
The control of pests in Eucalyptus is complex. Due to this complexity, alternative control methods have been proposed, namely biological control through use of parasitoids. Trichospilus diatraeae is a pupal parasitoid that ...
Mating preferences and consequences of choosing sibling or non-sibling mates by females of the predator Podisus nigrispinus (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
(Florida Entomologist, 2013-06-01) [Artigo]
The sex with the greater investment in offspring is more careful in selecting sexual partners. Mating preferences and consequences of choosing sibling or non- sibling males by Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas) (Heteroptera: ...
Atlantic rainforest remnant harbors greater biotic diversity but reduced lepidopteran populations compared to a eucalyptus plantation
(Florida Entomologist, 2013-09-01) [Artigo]
Study of the dynamics and distribution of lepidopteran defoliators is important because some of them are major pests of eucalyptus. More than 3,000,000 ha of eucalyptus are now planted in Brazil even though the genus is ...
Euselasia hygenius Occulta (Riodininae): First report of feeding on Psidium guajava (Myrtaceae) in Minas Gerais State, Brazil
(Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society, 2013-08-29) [Artigo]
Insect defoliators of native Myrtaceae in Brazil are important because of potential outbreaks in reforestation of exotic Eucalyptus spp. The objective of this study was to identify a lepidopteran defoliator of Psidium ...
Musca domestica as a host for mass rearing of parasitoid Palmistichus elaeisis (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)
(Agrociencia, 2013) [Nota]
Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae), is a potential mechanical vector of etiological agents such as viruses, bacteria, protozoan cysts and larvae of helminthes. It has shown potential as an alternative host for the mass ...
