association of a new wolbachia strain with, and its effects on, leptopilina victoriae, a virulent wasp parasitic to drosophila spp.wolbachia bacteria are ubiquitous intracellular bacteria of arthropods. often considered reproductive parasites, they can benefit certain host species. we describe a new wolbachia strain from leptopilina victoriae, a drosophila wasp. the strain is closely related to wolbachia from culex sp. located to the posterior poles of oocytes, it manipulates its host's reproduction by inducing a male development type of cytoplasmic incompatibility. we also report its diverse effects on the wasp's life hist ...201222685158
