Resumen en inglés

Tamarixia radiata (Waterson) (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) is an idiobiont ectoparasitoid of the Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri Kuwayama (Hemiptera: Psyllidae). This study evaluated natural parasitism of the different nymphal instars of D. citri by T. radiata on three different dates in 2015 at four sites with Mexican lemon (Citrus aurantifolia Swingle) groves and at one site with orange jasmine (Murraya paniculata [L.] Jacq.) plants in the Apatzingán Valley, Michoacán state. Different patterns of parasitism by T. radiata were observed among the different nymphal instars of D. citri, sites, and collection dates. No parasitism of first and second instars was observed, and it only reached up to 5.0% in third instars. In fourth and fifth instars, parasitism was highly variable (2–69 and 1–38%, respectively). In terms of the accumulated parasitism across host instars, the highest percentages were observed in the collections conducted in May in Crucero de Parácuaro (86%) and Antúnez (91%), and they were approximately 45% in the collections conducted on 23 March in Antúnez and on 10 April in Nueva Italia-2. In the remaining collections, parasitism was between 2 and 15%. Our results suggest that T. radiata is an important mortality factor for populations of D. citri; this could have potentially important implications for the biological control of D. citri and for the management of huanglongbing, a disease transmitted by D. citri, in citrus groves.
