Telenomus sp. --det. O.A. Popovici
Moved from Scelioninae.

Moved from Pteromalids.

Scelionid wasp (Fam. Scelionidae) emerging from Heteroptera eggs.

Moved from Chalcid Wasps.

The well armoured black coloration, large and sculptured thorax, 13-segmented antennae, and wing venation indicate a pteromalid chalcid wasp. Several genera are known to be egg predators.

See reference here.

Good info...
Thanks, Ross! Is the wasp in Sean's photo from last year also a pteromalid?

Cool pictures back then...
...and cool pictures now! Sorry that there aren't going to be any nymphs for you to document though.
