ABSTRACT
Ceraeochrysa paraguaria do not has its life history well known, despite its description do not berecent. The present work aimed to evaluate morphometric aspects of C. paraguaria larvae werefeeding on Diatraea saccharalis, Sitotroga cerealella e Anagasta kuehniella eggs with the objectiveto determine the mandibule length, head capsule length, torax + head length, and larvae weight.By the results it was possible to conclude: to the morphometrical parameters, only larvae weight wasinfluenced by the food consumed by the predator, being the nymphal development shorter.
