Distribution

Neotropical region.

Biology

Reared from puparia of Ceratitis capitata and Anastrepha striata (Wharton et al. 1998), with additional hosts and distribution data given by Guimaraes et al. (1999) (Wharton & Yoder, 2020).

Links Parasitoids of Fruit-Infesting Tephritidae (Robert Wharton and Matt Yoder).
