抄録

We investigated the egg placement of the microtype tachinid fly Sturmia bella on leaves of the evergreen milkvine Marsdenia tomentosa, one of the foodplants of the host butterfly Parantica sita, in the southern Kinki district of Japan. Most S. bella eggs were found on the undersurface of young M. tomentosa leaves around leaf tips or along leaf margins. Choice of oviposition sites was independent of leaf size and existence of leaf damage made by the host larvae. Parantica sita changed its feeding patterns with larval development and left three types of characteristic feeding marks on M. tomentosa leaves. Since fourth and fifth instar larval P. sita ate the marginal areas, apical areas and sometimes even entire leaves, most S. bella eggs are considered to be ingested during these stages. Both female adults and larvae of P. sita showed no age preference for the M. tomentosa leaves. The relationship between the feeding habit of P. sita and the egg placement of S. bella on M. tomentosa is discussed.
