Ichneumonidae -> Tromatobia sp.

Postby hanshermann on 27 Nov 2017, 00:13

Hello,

the pictures were taken on Sept. 22 in the North of Hannover, Germany in a dry area.
The wasp was ovipositing into a cocoon of Argiope bruennichi. I found out that Tromatobia ornata
is a parasite of this special spider.

Could my pictures show Tromatobia ornata?

Thank you for answering,

Hans

This is not a Pimpla species (ovipositor too long, head never with yellow marks). Probably Tromatobia sp.
