Abstract: Supernumerary molts involving as many as 3 head capsule exuviae of the morphological first instar larvae of Diachasmimorpha tryoni (Cameron) were observed in the host puparium or the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann). This phenomenon was frequently observed when parasitization occurred in early stage host larvae.
