Continuation of my observations of this (parasitoid) wasp from the same locality in 2011*
* “Particularly small insects in shaded area”; “Chalcid wasp (cont.)”
No interactions present.
On the present occasion, small globular springtails were particularly obvious on leaf and other surfaces – suggestive (only) of them being hosts. Temperature nearby: approx. 10 degrees, the inference being that the wasp can stay active in winter if the temperature is above a certain threshold. Observations made after a period of significant rain.
