Cuckoo Wasp

Chrysididae sp.

Description:

Family: Chrysididae
less than 5mm in length

Notes:

Found it dead today in my window. I had seen pieces of blue wasps before, but never a complete body. These Velux windows are a death trap for flying bugs.

Thanks Karen & Gilma.
I always thought these metallic coloured insects where exclusive of the tropics, but I've managed to photograph 2 species of these iridiscent wasps right at home.

Gorgeous color!! Agustín Amenabar L, looks like some jewelry I had in the past, Cuckoo Wasps are just so Beautiful.
