Grasshopper nymph with tachinid eggs

Grasshopper nymph with tachinid eggs

The eggs were on a Chortophaga viridifasciata nymph. I'll see if I can have some luck and rear the flies.

Moved from Tachinidae. Moving here for now, hope you get lucky with this!

I'll find out in the spring
I'm keeping the grasshopper in the shed this winter, and if it's still alive in the spring, we should see the fly.
