    • Abstract

       

      The sequence of host seeking and stimuli involved in them for the larval parasitoid wasEriborus argentipilosus and its- hostHeliothis armigera are discussed through a series of experimental observations. In such a sequence of behaviour the step-by-step release of the different responses tending to contribute to the efficiency of host finding are explained.
