OLIVA, Adriana. Parasitoid wasps (Hymenoptera) from puparia of sarcosaprophagous flies (Diptera: Calliphoridae; Sarcophagidae) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Rev. Soc. Entomol. Argent. [online]. 2008, vol.67, n.3-4, pp.139-141. ISSN 0373-5680.

Emergence of parasitoid Hymenoptera from experimental rearings of sarcosaprophagous Diptera (Calliphoridae, Sarcophagidae) attracted to beef baits were recorded in Buenos Aires (Argentina) from 1998 to 2003. Four taxa were identified: Tachinaephagus zealandicus Ashmead (Encyrtidae), Brachymeria podagrica (Fabricius) (Chalcididae), Nasonia vitripennis (Walker) (Pteromaliidae) and Alysia sp. (Braconidae: Alysiinae). Only the first two species were abundant in all years. The number of added monthly emergences of each species is presented and correlated with monthly mean maximum-minimum temperatures.

Keywords : Sarcosaprophagous blowflies; Wild population of Calliphoridae; Tachynaephagus zeelandicus; Brachymeria podagrica.
