Muesebeck (1940) recorded Goniozus indicus Muesebeck as a parasite of the genera Scirpophaga and Chilo from India and stated that it had been reared from Diatraea venosata Walker. Pruthi (1941) reported it parasitizing Emmalocera depressella Swinhoe in India in 1940. Cherian and Israel (1942) demonstrated larval parasitism and gave an account of the bionomics of G. indicus on Sciropophaga rhodoproctalis Hampson and Chilo zonellus Swinhoe. During the same year the species was reported by Cherian and Subramanian (1942) as parasitizing D. venosata. Rao (personal communication) stated it was also found parasitizing Chilotraea infuscatellus Snellen, Proceras indicus Kapur, and Scirpophaga nivella F. Although the genus Goniozus is common throughout the world, available literature reveals no further record of parasitism by G. indicus. Recently a study was made at Canal Point, Fla., to determine if G. indicus would parasitize the sugarcane borer, Diatraea saccharalis (F.)
