Abstract

The insect planidium larvae found on some Antillean scorpions of the family Buthidae, and previously recorded as belonging to Perilampidae wasps (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea), are herein identified as members of Eucharitidae, possibly genus Kapala. Their occurrence on scorpions is interpreted as accidental or perhaps phoretic.

Resumen

Su presencia en escorpiones pudiera ser accidental o tratarse de foresis.
