Ernesto Prado C.1

Information about parasitoids and hiperparasitoids of the Oriental Fruit Moth in Chile, is presented. The degree of parasitism was very low and parasitoids were present only in twig-infesting and diapaused larvae. No parasitoid species were found on peach-fruit-feeding larvae. Most of the parasitoids are native species.
