Sturmia bella (Meigen) (Dipt.:Tachinidae) and the strand that is not silk

2003

Abstract

Tests conducted on strands left hanging from Lepidoptera pupae from which larvae of the parasitoid tachinid fly Sturmia bella have egressed show that this substance is best regarded as mucous containing glycoproteins, and that it should not be referred to as silk.
