Thread subject: :: Miltogramma on Dasypoda?

I thought Daniel Whitmore should be able to solve the problem. Here is his answer:
"Many Miltogramminae aren't species-specific, so Theo is right. M. germari is a known parasite of D. hirtipes." He refers to two interesting papers by Welch & Owens (2017, 2019) found in https://ia601707....12unse.pdf and https://dipterist...No%202.pdf.
So three Miltogramma species are known to be cleptoparasites of Dasypoda hirtipes, and we can only exclude M. punctata. 1:0 for Theo :D!
