Oobius agrili

Oobius agrili
East Lansing, Ingham County, Michigan, USA
April 8, 2011
Size: 1 mm
Two of the emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennisi)eggs in this image are parasitized by Oobius agrili, an egg parasitoid introduced to the U.S. from China to help manage emerald ash borer. The black pellets inside the parasitized eggs are frass from the parasitoid. The other two eggs contain emerald ash borer larvae about to hatch.

Moved from ID Request.

Hope to see some pics of the adult encyrtids.

I'll see what I can do
I'll see what I can do, the darn things are just SO dang small:)
