Abstract: ABSTRACT. Hymenopterous parasitoids associated to pupae of Methona themisto (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae) in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil. The goals of this study were to know the parasitoid guild associated to pupae of Methona themisto (Hübner, 1818), evaluate the relative abundance of each species of parasitoid and the effect of parasitism on the host mortality.

“…Caterpillars of Methona themisto are parasitized by Zigofrontina sp. (Diptera: Tachinidae), and several other parasitoids that emerge from the pupae (Nardi et al, 2006), however, it is unknown if the same chemicals that protect the caterpillars from attack by visually hunting predators are effective against parasitoids. Furthermore, whether the compounds involved in chemical protection against predation and are sequestered from the host plant or biosynthesized de novo remains to be investigated.…”

“…Pertence a esta subfamília a espécie Methona themisto (Hubner, 1818), comumente encontrada em locais urbanos nas regiões sul e sudeste do Brasil, embora ocorra desde o Pará até o Rio Grande do Sul (SILVA et al, 1968, apud NARDI et al, 2006. A alimentação de suas lagartas consiste exclusivamente em folhas de plantas do gênero Brunfelsia (Linnaeus, 1822), especialmente da espécie Brunfelsia uniflora, cujo nome popular é manacá-de-cheiro (NARDI et al, 2006).…”

“…Já os parasitoides têm somente o estágio imaturo como parasita de um único hospedeiro, que é usado como fonte de alimento (HÖLLDOBLER; ARON, 2005) e eventualmente é morto pouco antes de chegar ao imago (SARMIENTO, 2000). O comportamento dos parasitoides é comumente chamado de parasitoidismo (MAIA; TA-VARES, 2000;NARDI et al, 2006;RODRÍGUEZ;SÁIZ, 2006).…”
