oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - The biology of Orgilus parcus Turner (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)

Volume 32, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Orgilus parcus was descriptionbed by R. E. Turner in 1922 from adults collected at Mossel Bay and Ceres in the Cape Province and is presumably indigenous to South Africa. It attacks tuber moth larvae in potato lands in the Transvaal and in the Cape, and probably elsewhere in the country. A descriptionption is given of its life-history and behaviour and of the morphology of the immature stages.
