Comments. In the same samples that specimens of A. fumosella were collected, some parasitoid wasps ( Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae) with very similar (mimetic) body color pattern were always present. This possibly indicates an ecological interaction between these species, and therefore, reinforces the well-known relationship between Symphrasinae and Hymenoptera ( Redborg 1998, Tauber et al. 2009, Maia-Silva et al. 2013, Tauber et al. 2017).
