status

 

Eurysthaea scutellaris (Robineau-Desvoidy, 1848) 

Discochaeta hyponomeutae  Rond.: Forti 1991 (in Coscollá 1997: 218), Coscollá 1997.

Notes.

Coscollà (1997) refers that this tachinid fly is the only parasitoid obtained by Forti (1991) from larvae of EGVM second generation, with a rate of parasitism of 3.7 %, though later on Roat and Forti did not mention this species in their list published in 1994. Cerreti and Tschorsnig (2010) reported eight species of Lepidopteran host for Eurysthaea scutellaris  (mostly Yponomeutidae  , but also Tortricidae  and Geometridae  ) for Italy, but he did not mention Lobesia botrana  among them.

According to Cerreti (2010), Cerreti and Tschornig (2010) and Fauna Europaea, in Italy there are other four species of Tachinidae  that could parasitize EGVM, though they have not been found on this host in our country yet ( Martinez et al. 2006). These are Elodia morio  (Fallen, 1820), Nemorilla floralis  (Fallen, 1810), Nemorilla maculosa  (Meigen, 1824) and Pseudoperichaeta nigrolineata  (Walker, 1853) ( Martinez et al., 2006).
