According to the 1979 catalog of Hymenoptera, two species of Cotesia have been reared from Automeris io: electrae and hemileucae. Cotesia electrae is a western species, although hemileucae was recorded from Oregon as well as from states in the eastern USA.

Moved from parasitic Apocrita.

Moved from "New Mexico Io Moth".
I hope that this finds a permanent home soon.
