  • Title
    A new host record and a new combination in Cotesia Cameron (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) from India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Cotesia tiracolae (=Apanteles tiracolae), new combination proposed, is redescribed and illustrated. It is recorded as a larval parasitoid of Phaedyma columella (Cramer) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) feeding on the host plant Grewia tiliifolia Vahl from Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. This is the first record of larval parasitism associated with P. columella from India. P. columella, the Short Banded Sailer, is a species of nymphalid butterfly found in South Asia and Southeast Asia. The present study also represents host range extension of the parasitoid C. tiracolae to Nymphalidae.
