Pteromalus semotus

This Pteromalus semotus has emerged from the larval web of White Satin Moth (Leucoma salicis) found at Hull, VC61. It is actually a hyperparasitoid, the primary parasitoid of the moth being the braconid Cotesia melanoscela.

Two other chalcids emerged from the web, a little blue one (as yet unidentified) and a Eurytomidae (probably Eurytoma).
