Biology / Hosts
Members of the genera Coptera and Trichopria attack pupae inside host puparia. The species of Coptera that have been studied in detail are endoparasitoids of pupae, with oviposition through the host puparium.
Spilomicrus hemipterus has been collected from puparia of Anomoia purmunda infesting Crataegus, and from various Rhagoletis species infesting Lonicera, Prunus, and Berberis in Europe (Hoffmeister 1992).
Trichopria was recorded by Bodenheimer (1951) from pupae of Ceratitis capitata in Israel. Other records are discussed in Ovruski et al. (2000)
