Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Aphid mummy (Acyrthosiphon pisum) on a bean leaf. The aphid was parasitized by an aphid wasp which laid its egg inside the live aphid. The newly hatched wasp larvae used the aphid body contents for food, eventually killing the aphid. This insect transmits alfalfa mosaic virus (rhabdovirus) and pea enation mosaic (isometric) virus. Magnification: x5 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
