Ronald Cave et al.: the exploration for parasitoids (this means mainly wasps and flies which are in their larval stadium parasetic in a for the host deadly way) to be used in the struggle against bromeliad-eating weevils of the genus Metamasius. The geographical areas where bromeliads are affected by the larvae of the weevils include Florida and parts of Mexico, Guatemala and Belize.

New from Bolivia: Deuterocohnia gableana Vásquez & Ibisch and
the subspecies Deuterocohnia scapigera ssp. sanctae-crucis Vásquez & Ibisch.
