EENY-312: Parasitoid of the Citrus Leafminer, Cirrospilus ingenuus Gahan (Insecta: Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)

Figure 5. Laboratory observations indicate that Cirrospilus ingenuus Gahan could parasitize citrus leafminer larvae that were already parasitized by the endoparasitoid Ageniaspis citricola. As a result, it is possible that C. ingenuus could act as a facultative hyperparasitoid.
