Pike, K. S., P. Stary, M. J. Brewer, T. Noma, S. Langley, and M. E. Kaiser. 2007. A new species of Binodoxys (Hymenoptera: Braconidae, Aphidlinae), parasitoid of the soybean aphid, Aphis glycines Matsumura, with comments on biocontrol. Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington 109:359-365.
Binodoxys kelloggensis Pike, Stary, and Brewer, n. sp. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Aphidiinae), is described and illustrated. 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.
