Poo On A Leaf :- Parasitic Wasp.

June 24th, 2011 by Ray Burman Leave a reply »

We all know what bird droppings looks like and most people would have been lucky enough to have had a bird poo drop on there head from on high…

Well we wouldn’t want to touch it if it was on a leaf would we? Well that is how this little creature seems to protects itself….

Its actually the pupae stage of the animal that were talking about here.

It’s a type of Parasitic Wasp, possibly Hyposoter exiguae.

The pupae camouflages itself as a bird poo, fact or fiction?
