Caption

Parasitoid wasp (Psyttalia concolor) feeding on plant material. This wasp was discovered in Kenya, reared in a laboratory in Guatemala, and imported into California for use as a biological control for the olive fruit fly (Bactrocera oleae). Parasitoid wasps lay their eggs in the body of their insect prey, and the larvae then feed on the insect after they have hatched.
