When a little is enough: cocoon web of Kapogea cyrtophoroides (Araneae: Araneidae) induced by Hymenoepimecis heidyae (Ichneumonidae: Pimplinae)
The final instar larvae of the koinobiont ectoparasitoids in the Polysphincta group of genera induce their host spiders to construct webs that protect the wasp pupa during its development. It has been hypothesized that ...
Cocoon web induced by Eruga telljohanni (Ichneumonidae: Pimplinae) in Leucauge sp. (Tetragnathidae)
The hosts and cocoon webs of koinobiont-ectoparasitic wasps in the genus Eruga Townes in Townes & Townes, 1960 are known for only two species. We describe here the host spider and cocoon web of a third Eruga species: E. ...
Messua sp. (Salticidae), the host spider of the polysphinctine Inbioia pivai (Ichneumonidae: Pimplinae)
The koinobiont ectoparasitoids of spiders in the Polysphincta genus group are divided into two well-supported clades. Species in one clade parasitize spiders in the higher araneoid group, and the behaviour of these ...
