Abstract
Pachycrepoideus vindemmiae (Rondani) (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae) is a solitary parasitoid containing a great number of Diptera in the families Anthomyiidae, Calliphoridae, Muscidae, Tachinidae and Tephritidae. This species presents a diversified distribution and it has been found in North America, Canada and Africa The study determined the species of hosts of the parasitoid P. vindemmiae in cattle dung, human feces, manure kidneys, cattle liver, pig carcass, fish and fruit. The pupae were obtained by the flotation method. They were individually placed in gelatin capsules until the emergence of adult flies or their parasitoids. The overall percentage of parasitism was 6.8%. Through this study, knowledge of the bioecology and geographical distribution of parasitoids of dipterous in Brazil.
