Zusammenfassung

An Hand von Freiland- und Laboruntersuchungen wird über Wirtssuche, Eiablage und Wirtsspezifität der PipunculideEudorylas subterminalis Coll. als Parasit von Kleinzikaden in West-Berlin berichtet. Bei der Wirtssuche spielt die visuelle Orientierung die Hauptrolle. Als Wirte wurden das 2., 3. oder 4. Larvenstadium von Cicadellidae gewählt, selten das 1. und nie das adulte Stadium. Das Weibchen legte ihr Ei in das Haemocoel zwischen dem 4. und 5. Tergit, die Larve wanderte im Körper des Wirts. Die Fliege ist bezüglich ihrer Wirte nicht spezifisch. Es wird eine Übersicht der bisherigen Parasitierungen von Kleinzikaden durch Pipunculiden in West-Berlin gegeben.

Studies onEudorylas subterminalis Coll. (Dipt., pipunculidae) parasitizing some cicadellidae (homoptera) in Berlin (West)

Abstract

During a staying at Berlin (West) in 1977/80 studies were conducted on the host-searching, oviposition and host-specificity ofEudorylas subterminalis, a parasitic fly species of Pipunculidae. The visual orientation of the female fly plays undoubtedly a dominant role in searching the host. The female fly usually selects for oviposition only second, third and fourth instar nymphs of the cicadellid hosts. The first instar nymph is rarely attacked, while fifth instar is not accepted at all. The female oviposits within the haemocoel between fourth and fifth tergital region of the host. The fly is unspecific and attacks species of leafhoppers belonging to the family Cicadellidae. The records of Pipunculidae and their hosts in Berlin (West) have also been stated.
