Description Our study revealed considerable differences in host-parasitoid interactions between Eriostethus minimus associated with 3D tangle web-building spiders from the family Theridiidae ( new family record for Eriostethus) and E. perkinsi associated with 2D orb-web weaving spiders from the family Araneidae. A pupa of the former species was located in a spider retreat in the centre of an unmodified 3D tangle web and the pupal cocoon had a sparsely woven and partially transparent wall.
