Abstract

Data are presented on long-distance location of hosts by a larval parasitoid of Drosophila simulans, Leptopilina heterotoma. Naive parasitoids responded strongly to a volatile aggregation pheromone, cis-vaccenyl acetate, that is deposited at the oviposition site by recently mated female hosts. This paper was presented at the 5th European Workshop on Insect Parasitoids held in Biri, Norway, on 24-28 May 1994.
