This ant is in a panic after being repeatedly hit by the phorid fly. The fly flew out of sight after hitting this ant once more.

This is the problem with linking different species as if they were the same specimen; they get tagged together and accidentally moved together. The three images of the fly should be unlinked from the ants and linked together as same individual. To maintain the connection between both groups of images all that is needed is the kind of link: [thumb:#].

The fly is Apocephalus framea
The fly is Apocephalus frameatus and this is the first known host information. Well done!
