Moved from ID Request.

We have no ideas, but we love them!

Dave Wagner didn't know what these were, but one he mentioned was Plagiomimicus, but he wasn't sure this would work. However, I have had Plagiomimicus tepperi mating on this same plant. I will try to rear, but I seem to have poor success doing this, and some are obviously parasitized.

Don't know how soon the egg hatches
and the larva enters the caterpillar. You try removing the egg???

I will see what I can d tomorrow
the eggs looked fresh...

Any news on this Plagiomimicu
