Thread subject: :: Parasites of geometer moth => Eulophidae

Posted by Marion Friedrich on 27-12-2019 21:45

in the beginning of June I found a green geometer moth caterpillar with some larvae. On the next day the larvae had multiplied their volume. One day later the inconspicuous threads on the second picture with the larvae had multiplied and covered the larvae and the brown caterpillar now. Some days later the larvae had completely disappeared. I assume the larvae were killed by an entomophagous fungus.
I guess the larvae belong to diptera. Is further ID of superfamily, family or subfamily possible?

Thanks, Marion
