Figure 5. Two parasitoid Diglyphus sp. larvae (one is feeding horizontally on top, the second is positioned vertically to the right side of the larger host larva) feeding on a leafminer larva. The larvae were removed from the mine of a bean leaf. Larvae in this genus are external parasitoids of dipteran leafminers. Photograph by: Jian Li, University of Florida
