Movie S1.

parasitized caterpillar, bent over the parasitoid pupae that have
egressed from it, defends itself and the parasitoid pupae against a
predator with violent head-swings, resulting in the predator being
knocked off the twig.

Movie S2.

A non-parasitized caterpillar hardly responds to a predator

Acknowledgments Top

Dr. Jos Cola Zanuncio generously supplied S. cincticeps
for laboratory experiments. Special thanks to Seu Geraldo and Prof.
Gilberto de Freitas for allowing us on their guava plantations, to
Prof. Ayres Menezes Jr (University of Londrina, Brazil) for
identification of the parasitoids and to Prof. Lino Neto (Federal
University of Viosa) for discussions and assistance. Comments by Dr.
Rob Knell, Dr. Nigel Raine, and an anonymous reviewer resulted in
substantial improvements of the manuscript. We thank Paulien de Bruijn,
Martijn Egas, Tom Groot, Tessa van der Hammen, Jeroen Hoffer, Roos van
Maanen, Andr de Roos, Nicola Tin, Yasuyuki Choh, Sam Elliot and
Michiel van Wijk for suggestions and discussions.
