Abstract:In 1931, following a request made by the French entomological service and working in co-operation with it, Macrocentrus ancylivorus was shipped from New Jersey to southern France and liberated there in peach orchards infested with the oriental fruit moth. The parasite was recovered in considerable numbers, from subsequent generations of twig-infesting larvae, and the present prospect of its becoming established is good.
