Abstract

Cephalonomia stephanoderis Betrem (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae), a parasitoid of coffee berry borer, Hypothenemus hampei Ferrari (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) were reared in large numbers and released in different coffee growing areas of Pulney Hills, Tamil Nadu, between 2003 and 2007. During surveys from 2003 to 2006 parasitism rates were ranged between 11.36% and 44.88% at release sites. Seven years after the last release, 16% to 45% parasitism was recorded from samples collected from five different areas of Pulney Hills.
