Caption

Chiastocheta fly's egg on globeflower. Egg (lower right) of a Chiastocheta fly inside the flower of a globeflower (Trollius europaeus). This fly plays a vital role in the life cycle of this plant, helping to pollinate the plant as well as laying eggs from which its larvae hatch and feed on the seeds of the fruit that develops from the fertilised flower. This is an example of obligate mutualism. This plant is found in Europe and Western Asia. Photographed in Europe.
