Abstract

Ooencyrtus nezarae produced a large number of progeny on eggs of Megacopta punctissimum and Homoeocerus unipunctatus on Kudzu-vine, Pueraria lobata, in various localities of Fukuoka Prefecture from June to July in 1985. Thus, the community of this wild plant is considered to be an important breeding site of 0. nezarae before it attacks eggs of several species of bugs in soybean fields from July to October.
