The life history of male strepsipterans is somewhat similar to hymenopterous parasitoids.
Incidences of superparasitism were too few to allow statistical comparison between males from superparasitized hosts and single strepsipterans from a host.
Due to this low incidence, not enough emerging adult strepsipterans from superparasitized hosts were collected to analyze numerically.
