This aphidiine parasitoid, found in southcentral Michigan, is considered a native species, reared from the exotic soybean aphid, Aphis glycines Matsumura, from naturally infested field soybeans and from aphid-infested potted soybeans placed outdoors among assorted plants. It is one of eight parasitoid species now known to attack A. glycines in North America.
