I’ve posted about Lerps and Psyllids before but this time I’ve gone the extra mile, dear reader. When I found this fantastic basket lerp in the shape of a shell, I could hardly contain my excitement but I soon noticed the nymph inside seemed to be a bit odd. Turns out it had been the victim of a parasite wasp and was busy being a lovely puparium. Note to future psyllidae: stay away from the sides of your basket if you’re going to make such big holes! Anyhow, I kidnapped my find and kept it in a bottle to see if anything would emerge and huzzah! There came a lovely little metallic wasp, guilty as charged.
