Moved from ID Request. Beatriz has started a gallery of tachinid egg images, so now people can get to this image through Braconidae or Tachinidae.

Wow, parasitoid wasps and tachinid fly eggs too!
Poor fella! See Cucullia intermedia
but we may want to move this to the parasitoid page.

Wow, that's rough!
The parasitoids (tachinids and braconids) probably can't be identified to species, and I can't think of a reason to choose one parasitoid section over another, so maybe this belongs in the moth section after all.

The tachinid
are just eggs so we would move this to the braconid. That's our thought.
