WHAT DOES HYPERPARASITISM MEAN IN ENGLISH?
Entomophagous parasites are insects that are parasitic on other insects. Nearly all insects are attacked by one or more insect parasites. This parasitic mode of life is most often confined to the larvae with the adults usually leading free lives. The vast majority of Hymenopterous insect parasites are usually restricted to specific hosts, such as Embidobia, Platygaster and Polygnotus, Scelio and Aphidius. Often, species that are hyperparasites are less host-specific.

Facultative hyperparasitism probably evolved from primary ectophagous
parasitoids because few special adaptations are needed to oviposit and feed
externally on a primary parasitoid as well as on the primary parasitoid's
