Fruit fly parasitoids

figitid
Parasitic wasps in the family Figitidae (Eucoilinae), top male – bottom female.

Jamie Wahls, graduate student here in the Department of Entomology at Virginia Tech working in Tom Kuhar’s Vegetable Entomology Lab, recently visited our lab with some of his parasitoid wasps. This is an image of an unidentified species of figitid wasp, and fruit fly parasitoid, that we captured with our  microphotography system.
