Three new host species of the social wasp parasite, Polistes atrimandibularis (Hymenoptera, Vespidae)
We report that the social parasite Polistes atrimandibularis (Zimmermann) can exploit at least three more host species than previously described. One of these, P. associus, has never been reported as host of a social parasite. Our data show no constraints in host choice, indicating P. atrimandibularis is a generalist social parasite.
