Apanteles galleriae Wilkinson, 1932 http://species-id.net/wiki/Apanteles_galleriae Apanteles galleriae Wilkinson, 1932: 139. Type locality. FRANCE, Montpellier (Shenefelt 1972: 516). Holotype. , NMNH (not examined). Description. Whitfield et al. (2001) supplied a comprehensive description and quite a few black and white illustrations. Molecular information. Sequences in BOLD: 16, barcode compliant sequences: 12, haplotypes: 2 (but see Comments under). Biology/ecology. Solitary, parasitoid of early-instar larva of wax moths and emerges to spin its white cocoon and pupate well before the host larva reaches full size (Whitfield et fpsyg.2015.00334 al. 2001). Hosts: Pyralidae, Achroia grisella, Achroia innonata, Galleria mellonella, Vitula edmandsii. Distribution. Worldwide. This is a cosmopolitan species which has been introduced to numerous countries inadvertently with all the transport of honey b.Eyond anterior 0.7 metasoma length.
