Abstract


Species of parasitoids associated with synanthropic dipterous were collected in bovine liver, in a slaughterhouse in Tupaciguara, State of Minas Gerais, from March to December 2005. The pupae were obtained by the flotation method. They were individually placed in gelatin capsules until the emergency of the adult dipterous or their parasitoids. The overall percentage of parasitism was 14.1%. The parasitoids Brachymeria podagrica (Fabricius) (Hymenoptera: Chalcididae), Hemencyrtus sp. (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae), Nasonia vitripennis (Walker) (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), Neralsia sp. (Hymenoptera: Figitidae), Pachycrepoideus vindemmiae (Rondani) (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae) and Spalangia endius Walker (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae) presented a parasitism percentage of 0.6%, 0.7%, 0.8%, 0.1%, 11.6% and 0.3%, respectively.
