The parasitoids appeared in low numbers, being collected individuals of Eulophidae, Eucharitidae, Ceraphronidae, Mymaridae, Braconidae, Fitigidae and Chalcididae.
Malaise traps yielded all the families reported in this study, while Moericke traps were more selective, and did not capture individuals of Aphelinidae, Bethylidae, Eucharitidae, Eurytomidae, Evaniidae, Gasteruptiidae, Megaspilidae, Signiphoridae, Trichogrammatidae, and Torymidae.
Eucharitidae parasitize the immature stages of Formicidae and are among the most diverse hymenopteran parasitoids of eusocial insects [1-8].
Parasitoid wasps known to attack adult ants or their brood belong to 8 families: Diapriidae (Diaprioidea); Chalcididae, Eucharitidae, Eulophidae, Eurytomidae and Peril ampidae (Chalcidoidea); Braconidae and Ichneumonidae (Ichneumonoidea) (Wilson 1971; Kistner 1982; Holldobler & Wilson 1990; Schmid-Hempel 1998; Lachaud & Perez-Lachaud 2012).
Ten families of the order Hymenoptera were collected at the relatively undisturbed dry tropical forest of Kiuic Research Station, but not at the more disturbed area of Hacienda Tabi: Evaniidae, Braconidae, Torymidae, Eucharitidae, Chalcididae, Diapriidae, Scelionidae, Colletidae, Andrenidae and Sapygidae.
Eleven additional Hymenoptera families were collected feeding on EFNs of Banisteriopsis: Apidae, Bethylidae, Braconidae, Crabronidae, Eucharitidae, Eurytomidae, Evaniidae, Ichneumonidae, Pompilidae, Pteromalidae and Torymidae.
En cuanto a Hymenoptera, se encontraron las familias Braconidae, Ichneumonidae, Eulophidae, Eucharitidae, Eupelmidae y Chrysididae consideradas reguladoras del tamano poblacional de otros artropodos, dado que son parasitas o depredadoras de otros insectos, especialmente de aquellos que pueden ser plagas.
These include species of Asilidae, Anthocoridae, Reduviidae, Phymatidae, Eucharitidae and Thomisidae.
