NCBI blast searches for both the COI fragments showed similar level of identities (87%) with the wasp species from the families Trichogrammatidae, Aphelinidae, and Pteromalidae but the similarity was not conclusive with any particular species.
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.
Natural enemies of the family Trichogrammatidae are released worldwide against a number of lepidopterous pest on corn, rice, sugar-cane, cotton, vegetables and pines (Smith, 1994; Li, 1994; Grenier, 1994).
These families include Ichneumonidae (Arthur & Wylie 1959), Pteromalidae (Assem 1971), Braconidae (Tillman & Cate 1993), Aphelinidae (Opp & Luck 1986) and Eulophidae (Corrigan & Lashomb 1990); in addition to the Trichogrammatidae demonstrated by Salt (1940).
Our comparative analysis of thermal sensitivity of parasitization capacity across strains of hymenopterous Trichogrammatidae wasps provides support for the latter but not the former hypothesis.
