Status of Eurytoma sp. "black" as a biocontrol agent for Clidemia hirta in Hawaii

Testing of Eurytoma sp. "black" by Burkhart (1986, 1988) "found [it] to be of no value" for biocontrol of Clidemia hirta. (info from Conant 2002 (http://www.hear.org/bibliography/references/9442_conant_2002/), which cites Burkhart 1986 & 1988: Burkhart, R. M. 1986. Progress report on exploratory studies on Clidemia hirta in Trinidad, West Indies. June 1984-June 1985. Hawai'i Department of Agriculture files, Honolulu. 52 pp. Burkhart, R. M. 1988. Supplemental report (Part II) of investigations in Trinidad of insects feeding on the flowers and berries of Clidemia hirta. June 1985-June 1986.
