About this book

Wasps of the genus Scelio parasitise the eggs of pest locusts and grasshoppers, playing a major role in the regulation of orthopteran populations. This book presents detailed information on the sixty species of Scelio found on the Australian continent, half of which are newly described. Each species description is complemented with high-quality line drawings, micrographs and maps.
