Abstract

Acrocerid flies are endoparasitoids of spiders. New host associations are reported for Ogcodes melampus Loew 1872, O. eugonatus Loew 1872, and Acrocera sp. (Group IV; sensu Sabrosky 1944) from reared individuals of two Salticidae species, Pelegrina proterva (Walckenaer 1837) (both Ogcodes species), and Eris militaris (Hentz 1845) (the Acrocera sp.) (Group IV; sensu Sabrosky 1944). The spiders were sampled in the canopy and understorey of a mature north-temperate hardwood forest at the Morgan Arboretum, Québec, Canada.
