One of the commonest American ophionines. Gauld (1988) gives a complete description of the species. Data label from collections suggest that it is also the most common and widely distributed Ophioninae in the island. Most of the Cuban host records are from Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) ( Noctuidae ) in maize; but other authenticated records I have seen include Spodoptera sunia (Guennadius) in tobacco, and Spodoptera sp.
