(2001): Effects of Glyptapanteles liparidis (Hym.: Braconidae) parasitism, polydnavirus, and venom on development of microsporidia-infected and uninfected Lymantria dispar (Lep.: Lymantriidae) larvae.

Effects of parasitism, polydnavirus, and venom of the endoparasitoid Glyptapanteles liparidis on Lymantria dispar larvae infected with the microsporidium Vairimorpha sp, and uninfected hosts were studied. We tested the impact on growth and development of hosts, as well as on microsporidian infection. Both parasitism and polydnavirus/venom treatment alone caused a slight increase in growth rate and relative growth rate in uninfected fourth instar hosts. This effect was more pronounced with the addition of Vairimorpha infection. With no parasitism, however, infection reduced host growth markedly. Microsporidiosis delayed larval molts of L. dispar, and additional polydnavirus/venom treatment or parasitization induced significantly earlier molting. Polydnavirus/venom treatment of uninfected L. dispar resulted in prolonged larval development due to supernumerary molts and in higher pupal mortality. Infected larvae treated with polydnavirus/venom died earlier than infected larvae that were not treated and produced more Vairimorpha spores per unit fresh mass of the host. (C) 2001 Academic Press.
