概要 The adult females of many parastic Hymenoptera feed on their host insects to gain nutrients for eff production, a behavior known as host-feeding. Host-feeding is an essential component determining fem...ale fecundity for a number of parasitoid species. The size of adult femakes is widely recognized as a factor that intimately affects their fitness, including fecundity. Association between host-feeding and female size would then be expected but this has received poor attention so far. Here we studied the relationships between female size and host-feeding behavior, using Itoplectis naranyae, and ichneumonid endoparasitoid of many lepidopteran pests in rice paddies. During the early stage of female life, larger females fed on a greater number of hosts whereas the nubber of hosts ovipositied did not differ among femakes of different size, In addition, larger females took larger host meal from single host individuals. Female size did not affect when females fed on a host-feeding and the number of hosts oviposited until that day. The age of females did not affect the size of host meal. We discussed the relationship among female size, fecundity and host-feding and how female size affected egg production in the larger stage of female life.続きを見る
