After pupation, pupae were monitored for any directly developing individuals (displaying very short developmental times), which were excluded from analyses and figures.
The parasitoid, in some cases, makes use of the legs of Coccinellidae host (Figure 1c) during the process of pupation, leaving it imprisoned and deprived of food, leading to death, possibly by starvation; even with the pupa of the parasitoid formed, the Coccinellidae host remained alive.
