■ Tachinids of Bertha Armyworm

P.G. Mason kindly assisted with the compilation of names of tachinids reared from bertha armyworm, provided helpful information on bertha armyworm parasitoids, loaned tachinids reared from bertha armyworm, and reviewed a draft of the paper upon which these web pages are based. I am grateful to D.M. Wood for discussions on the separation of certain tachinid species treated herein. I also thank D.M. Wood and Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada for permission to use figures from Volumes 1 and 2 of the Manual of Nearctic Diptera to illustrate the key to the tachinids of bertha armyworm. R.E. Roughley loaned tachinid specimens from the Department of Entomology, University of Manitoba. B.E. Cooper produced the digital images of each tachinid genus and B. Flahey prepared the wing and abdomen drawings. Web pages were prepared by R.B. Fairchild.

Development of these web pages on the tachinids of bertha armyworm was funded in part by grants from the Matching Investment Initiative Program of Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada and:
