  • An exotic parasitic wasp Anisopteromalus apiovorus of Pteromalidae was newly recorded in Korea. Specimens of this species have been collected in Gimhae of Korea since 2012. External morphology of this species was described in detail and diagnostic differences of this species from the related species and the host insect were also given. The funicle segments of female antennae are 1.2 to 1.5 times longer than those of Anisopteromalus calandrae, an sister species. Body color is gold-glossy black and with dense creamy-white hairs on the surface. This exotic species has been originated from the African continent including Democratic Republic of Congo and Cote d'Ivoire, and then intruded into other countries, for instance, Korea. This is the first distribution record of this species except the country of origin after original description as a new species. Although little is known about the life history or ecology of this species, we found that a new host of this small parasitic wasp is Lasioderma serricorne of coleoptera through present study. And this species possibly be a new agent of biological control for economic pests. It was presumed that the invasion of Anisopteromalus apiovorus into Korea was prior to November of 2012.

  • Cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne F.(Coleoptera : Anobiidae), is one of the most serious insect pest of stored leaf tobacco in Korea. The first adults of their ecto-parasitic hymenoptera, Lariophagus ditinguendus F. (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), were emerged in late June in 1992, in early May in 1993 and 1995, in late May in 1994 and 1996. This parasitic hymenoptera had two peak times of adults emergence. The first one was from late June to early July and the 2nd peak time in the Suwon area occurred from late August to early September in 1993, 1994 and 1996, and late September in 1992 and 1995.

  • This study was carried out to classify the arthropods inhabited in pine mushroom (Tricholoma matsutake Singer). The arthropods were collected in a state forest (196 compartment, 157ha) located in Yangyang-gun, Kangwon-do. After collection the arthropods were classified in laboratory. The results obtained are summarized as follow; 1. Insects inhabited in pine mushroom are in total 19 Families of 7 Orders. Some animals in Araneina, Acarina, Nematoda and Stylommatophora were also observed, 2. The most injurious pests are Gyrophaena niponensis, Elateridae, Deosophilidae and Philomycidae (Stylommatophora). 3. The most dominant species is Gyrophaena niponensis (Staphylinidae, Coleoptera). 4. Some possible natural enemies are Oxyporus germanus, Sphedanolestes impressicollis, Phoridae, Carabidae, Pteromalidae, Eulophidae and Araneina.

  • This study was conducted to investigate the species of native parasitoids attacking Phyllocnistis citrella and their parasitism in citrus orchards in Jeju, Korea. During the survey period from 2013 to 2014, seven parasitoids belonging to Chalcidoidea were found: majority of the parasitoids were Sympiesis striatipes with 73% and Quadrastichus sp. with 22% in Eulophidae. The others were Neochrysocharis sp., Pnigalio sp., Holcopelte sp., Ageniaspis sp. (Encyrtidae) and Trichomalopsis sp. (Pteromalidae). Average parasitism rate reached 10.7% in orchards with spraying insecticide, and 32.2% in environmental-friendly managed orchards.

  • Adaptation of Anisopteromalus calandrae maintained on rice weevil (Sitophilus oryzae) to an alternative host, adzuki bean weevil (Callosobruchus chinensis) was studied. A. calandrae required two generations to adapt to the adzuki been weevil. Through the adaptation, the mean($\pm$SEM) life span of th females became shorter $8.7\pm$1.3 days at the first generation to $6.9\pm$0.6 days at the second generation. Number of eggs laid per female increased from 29.3$\pm$7.7 to $68.2\pm$6.5. Consequently intrinsic rate of natural increase and net reproductive rate were increased. The generation time and population doubling time were decreased. The searching efficiency based on functional and numerical response of A. calandrae to the adzuki bean weevil were similar to each other, but the coefficient of variation decreased with the generation, suggesting that searching efficiency became stable when the parasitoid adapted to adzuki bean weevil. No time lag was required for A. calandrae adapted to the adzuki bean weevil to adapt again to th rice weevil and the searching efficiency of the parasitoid remained on a similar level for the first generation on.
