Myosoma nyanzaensis sp. n. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) parasitic on the stem-borer pest Chilo partellus (Swinhoe) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) in Kenya

  • Donald L. J. Quicke (a1) and Robert A. Wharton (a2)

Abstract

Myosoma nyanzaensis sp. n. is described and illustrated, and is distinguished from the only other known Old World species, M. chinensis (Szépligeti) comb. n. (= Bracon chinensis Szépligeti). M. nyanzaensis is the first species of the genus to be described from the Afrotropical Region, where it has been reared as a gregarious ectoparasitoid of larvae of the pyralid moth Chilo partellus (Swinhoe) infesting maize and sorghum.
