COSTA, Valmir Antonio et al. Occurrence of Dinarmus basalis in Callosobruchus analis in stored soybean in São Paulo, Brazil. Sci. agric. (Piracicaba, Braz.) [online]. 2007, vol.64, n.3, pp.301-302. ISSN 1678-992X.

Callosobruchus analis (F.) is considered an important pest in several countries in Africa, Asia and Oceania. It has been observed infesting seeds belonging to 15 Leguminosae genera, including peanut, bean, chickpea, pea, cowpea, and soybean. One of its main natural enemies is the parasitoid Dinarmus basalis (Rondani) (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), whose control efficiency has already been demonstrated in several studies. This paper records the occurrence of C. analis and its parasitoid, D. basalis, in stored soybean of the state of São Paulo, Brazil.

Keywords : Glycine max; Hymenoptera; Pteromalidae; Coleoptera; Bruchidae.
