First host records for the rogadine genus Conspinaria (Hymenoptera:Braconidae)and notes on Rogadinae as parasitoids of Zygaenidae (Lepidoptera)The parasitic wasp genus Conspinaria is recorded as parasitizing two species of chalcosiine zygaenid moths, Chalcosia thaivana owadai Wang and Erasmia pulchella hobsoni Butler in Taiwan. Parasitism of Zygaenidae and of Limacodidae by rogadine braconids is discussed in the light of possible phylogenetic relationships.
