Microplitis demolitor (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) is a parasitoid used as a biological control agent to control larval-stage Lepidoptera and serves as a model for studying the function and evolution of symbiotic viruses in the genus Bracovirus. Using RNA-Seq data for this species and manual annotation of genes of viral origin, we annotated a high-quality gene set including 171 virus-derived protein-coding genes.
