We have a good number of unidentified caterpillar parasites that remain in the Lepidoptera pages. The parasites themselves remain unidentified in many cases. It would be nice to get them together to ease the job of any expert on parasites which may want to take a look at them. So, here are the ones that I found recently. Let me know if you find more.
Most of the parasitoids collected here are Braconidae:Microgastrinae. The ones on hornworms are Cotesia and at one time might have been considered C. congregata. There is one campoplegine ichneumonid.
This is not much of an article, but it belongs with other articles in case we keep adding to it.
