Abstract Cephalonomia stephanoderis imported from Mexico is largely used in India as a successful exotic natural enemy of coffee berry borer. Present study compares the life cycle of the parasitoids in cherry and parchment coffee. Study reveals no great variation in the life cycle in both. Study also indicate that naturally infested cherry coffee is the suitable host than parchment for coffee berry borer breeding as the fecundity is found to be very low in parchment.
