Biology / Hosts
This species is known primarily as a parasitoid of the tephritid Toxotrypana curvicauda Gerstaecker in papaya fruits. D. toxotrypanae has been reared from Anastrepha spatulata Stone infesting Schoepfia schreberi Gmelin (Olacaceae) in Mexico, although there could be confusion with D. crawfordi in this region (Aluja et al. 2000).
