Anagyrus kamali Moursi, a parasitoid of the hibiscus mealybug, Phenacoccus hirsutus Green.
Biology and behaviour of the parasitoid Anagyrus kamali Moursi (Hymenoptera:Encyrtidae)
Progeny production by mated females was also higher than that of virgin kamxli. Female parasitoid fecundity was negatively correlated to their density due to mutual interference. Host selection experiments showed that, of nine species tested, HMB was the only suitable mealybug species for A.
Large parasitoids lived significantly longer, had a higher fecundity, and progeny emergence with a lower sex ratio than small ones.
Anagyrus kamali Moursi Systematic position: However, storage periods up to 14 days did not affect parasitoid lifetime fec. Suitability of nine mealybug species Homoptera: Encyrtidaeparasitoids of the pink hibiscus mealybug Maconellicoccus hirsutus Green Hemiptera: Head orange, dark brown on mouth margin, interantennal prominensce and ocellar area; scape white with a median black band; mesoscutum and scutellum dark brown, mesoscutum laterally orange; sides and venter of thorax orange.

Parasitoid body size was positively correlated to its fitness. It attacks all host stages, preferring the pre-ovipositional adult females, in which 2 or more eggs may be deposited. Organophosphates and pyrethroidsapplied against mealybugs, were very toxic to A. Scientific name Anagyrus kamali Moursi Taxonomic position Hymenoptera: Body stout and robust, head and mesosoma more or less orange, genae, mouth margin and interantennal kajali marked with dark brown; pronotum brown, anterior margin of mesoscutum and scutellum sometimes marked with brown.
