Hospicidal Behavior of the Cleptoparasitic Wasp Sapyga luteomaculata And Investigation into Ontogenetic Changes in Its Larval Anatomy (Hymenoptera: Vespoidea: Sapygidae)
American Museum Novitates
This study describes the nesting biology of the Egyptian cleptoparasitic wasp Sapyga luteomaculata Pic, which attacks the nests of two species of bees, Osmia submicans Morawitz and Megachile minutissima Radoszkowski, both belonging to the Megachilidae. We include descriptions of the egg/mature oocyte and of the first and last larval instars. We also identify the anatomical changes in the larva that take place as it transforms through intermediate instars from a host-killing first instar to adoi:10.1206/645.1 fatcat:na5mboucpjh4dlkbe2uyefjiie
