Abstract

© 2019 Southwestern Entomological Society. The molecular characterization of three species of the genus Chelonus was conducted for: [Ch. insularis Cresson 1865, Ch. cautus Cresson 1872 and Ch. sonorensis Cameron 1887 (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) - nominal species], parasitoids of the armyworm Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) collected in maize (Zea mays L.), which are distributed in Durango and in other states of Mexico. The extraction and amplification of DNA was by PCR, as well as the sequencing of a fragment of the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I, to determine the genetic variability within and between individuals of the same species..
