Abstract

The parasitoid of solenopsis mealybug, namely Aenasius bambawalei, has been recorded for the first time in Emerald, Queensland, Australia. The parasitoid was found during a routine inspection of ratoons on the western side of Emerald on 27 November 2012. During a recent trip to Theodore, two casings of parasitized mealybugs (already hatched) were also found, one on pigweed [ Amaranthus] and one in the field on a cotton plant.
