Abstract


This study reports, for the first time, the occurrence of Spalangia cameroni Perkins (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae) as parasitoid of Ornidia obesa Fabricius (Diptera: Syrphidae) in poultry farms in Morrinhos, Goiás, Brazil. Manure chicken samples, collected at two weeks intervals, were taken to the laboratory and the pupae were extracted by water flotation. Each pupa was placed in capsules of gelatin until the emergence of dipterous or their parasitoids. The parasitism percentage was 9.5%.
