Small flying insect with a long tail, green metallic back and 2 antens, spotted in my terrace in KL city centre
No worries. I suspect that it is one of the wasps associated with figs (not too many others have an ovipositor that long). Probably not the true fig wasp - but one of the parasitoids or other associates.
Thanks John, very helpful
Hi JordiThis is some type of chalcid wasp (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chalcid_was...I can't tell the family for sure - but with that long beautiful ovipositor sticking out the back it can't be too many things.
