Diachasmimorpha longicaudata (Ashmead) is a koinobiont endoparasitoid of Tephritidae larvae. In its habitat of origin, D. longicaudata. Diachasmimorpha longicaudata originated from the Indo-Pacific region, has been widely disseminated into America via Hawaii, and can be considered.

Biosteres longicaudatus Ashmead, It has been shown that rotting fruit is attractive with or without the presence of host larvae, and the attractant has been attributed to fungal fermentation products rather than to chemical substances produced by the fly larvae Greany et al.
Later introduced to Minas Gerais Alvarenga et al. It is now established Baranowski Introduced Mariana Islands Clausen, C. Diachasmimorpha longicaudata Ashmead, Controlling the Caribbean fruit fly in Florida.
The success rate for locating the infested lantana in a natural field setting for these parasitoids is not known, but based on the work of Duan and Messing, it is likely logicaudata be very low. The following synonymy is taken from Wharton and Gilstrapwho discuss the problem of previously used names in some detail.
Uttar Pradesh Clancy, D. Proceedings of the Hawaiian Entomological Society The female lays 13 to 24 eggs per day Lawrence et al. Braconidae], a parasite ofAnastrepha suspensa [Dip.: Papua New Guinea Clausen, C. The ban of methyl bromide, the high cost of cold treatment, and the growing concern for avoiding environmental damage from pesticides, led to more emphasis on biological control. There are no specimens currently determined for this OTU, or those specimens determined for this OTU are not yet mappable.
Although this classical biological control technique is effective in reducing Caribbean fruit fly populations, it is not an eradication technique. Home Australian Biosecurity Parasitoid.
The genus Diachasmimorpha has traditionally been defined by the morphology of their apically sinuate ovipositor. Biosteres compensans Silvestri, New South Wales Snowball, G.
