The genome sequence and assembly of a parasitoid wasp, Chelonus insularis
is a wasp genus in the subfamily Cheloninae. Their larvae feed chiefly on larvae of moths in superfamilies Tortricoidea
. This wasp is an important egg parasitoid of the fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda
, one of the main insect pests of maize (Zea mays L.)
The work was funded by "RoL: Collaborative Research: When a pathogen becomes a mutualist: discovery, evolution and rules that govern function and acquisition in wasp-viral symbiosis" (Grant ID DEB-1916788, National Science Foundation).
