Of the parasites which attack blow-flies, Mormoniella vitripennis Walk. is one of the best known and most widely distributed. The stock used in these experiments was derived from host pupae which had been exposed in the laboratory. It had been bred in captivity for about a year when these investigations were started. From time to time, fresh parasites, obtained from field-parasitized pupae, were added.
