Species of Ceranisinae (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) and their thysanopterous insects and plant associations in Turkey

Abstract :

From 8 provinces in Turkey, Hatay, Kahramanmaraş, Şanlıurfa, Niğde, Adıyaman, Gaziantep, Diyarbakır, and Bingöl-Muş province border, and from 36 localities, 20 species of Thysanoptera (18 species of Thripidae and 2 species of Phlaeothripidae), and 19 species of Ceranisinae, were collected. In the future, each Ceranisinae species and their thysanopterous associate(s), together with their host plants, should be collected from the localities, cultured under laboratory conditions and their hosts should be identified. In that case, the parasitoids could potentially be used in biological control programmes of the thrips species
