Piti, May 23, swept from bean vines, Swezey; Machanao, Aug. 6, swept from Piper guahamense, Swezey   ; Piti, Sept. 21, ex puparium of Ophyra chalcogaster Wiedemann   in cow dung, Swezey; Piti, Nov. 15, swept from bamboo, Swezey.  

This dipterous parasite was introduced into Hawaii from the Philippines in 1914. It was introduced from Hawaii to Guam in 1928. By 1930 it became so well established that house fly and stable fly puparia collected about the Experiment Station grounds showed a parasitism of 75 to 80 percent. Four specimens, one retained in U.
