Small hymenoptera

Post by Guppy »


There is a very large selection of small flying insect species.
In the vernacular they are often called mosquitoes, even if they do not bite.
Body length 7 mm.

Here a specimen with 7mm body length, which I found dead on a leaf, on the abdomen there were already mushroom threads visible.
