Cedomir Markovic, Aleksandar Stojanovic

Abstract


In the study of parasitoids of the plane leaf miner Phyllonorycter platani during 2004, 18 polyphagous parasitoid species were recorded in four tree rows and four parks in Serbia (3 species of the family Ichneumonidae and 15 species of the family Eulophidae). Among the recorded parasitoids, the most significant were the species Minotetrastichus platanellus, Pediobius saulius and M. frontalis, followed by the species Pnigalio agraules, P. pectinicornis, Sympiesis gordius and Neochrysocharis formosa. The other parasitoid species were rare and few. The parasitism rates in the study samples of Ph. platani ranged from 15.0 to 37.8 %.
