Abstract

Fopius arisanus Sonan and Fopius caudatus Szèpligeti (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) are two solitary endoparasitoids of tephritid fruit flies that parasitize eggs of fruit flies infesting the same fruits. We studied intraspecific competition between these two parasitoids species in the mango fruit fly Ceratitis cosyra (Walker)
(Diptera: Tephritidae). Based on previous documentation of the equal chance of survival between F. arisanus and Fopius ceratititvorus Wharton (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) while co-parasitizing (Bokonon-Ganta et al., 2005), we hypothesized that we would not find a superior competitor between the two parasitoids.
