Identification history

other wasp (Ichneumonidae, Braconidae & others) Cotesia sp. 3 Jul 2019 Paul Whitington

Significant sighting

  3 Jul 2019

This wasp has been identified as a new species by Dr. Erinn Fagan-Jeffries from the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Adelaide. She proposes to name the species Cotesia wonboynensis, after my suggestion and is preparing a manuscript describing the species for publication.

Author's notes

Approx. 30 of these wasps eclosed from pupae in silk cocoons on the back of a parasitised anthelid moth larva, which was feeding on Allocasuarina littoralis. The adult wasps were identified by antennal and wing morphology (see Fig. 42.20E, p. 946 in Insects of Australia, CSIRO 2nd ed.) Image 1 - male; images 2-5 - female.

This identification was confirmed by Dr. Erinn Fagan-Jeffries, a taxonomist from the University of Adelaide, who specialises in the subfamily Microgastrinae of the Braconidae. She has also confirmed that this is a new species and is currently preparing a manuscript for submission describing this.

30 of these wasps emerged from a caterpillar which was found feeding on Allocasuarina littoralis. This caterpillar has been identified as a Anthela sp.

Good find, Paul. Nice to get a host record to go with the original description too.
