Fourteen parasitoid species were recovered from Ancylis comptana larvae and pupae collected in central Iowa strawberry Fragaria × ananassa fields. Parasitism by the two most abundant parasitoid species, Itoplectis conquisitor (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae) and Pediobius facialis (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae), was synchronous with high A. comptana pupal densities. Because strawberries have a relatively high tolerance for A. comptana leaf rolling and feeding acticity, naturally occurring parasitoids should be conserved. -from Authors
