Caption: Parasitised aphids (superfamily Aphidoidea). These aphids have been infected by the wasp Praon sp. by being injected with its eggs. Here, the larva of the wasp have left the hollowed shell of the aphid after feeding on its innards, and have begun to pupate within the volcano-like cocoon beneath it.
