Parasitoids / Parasites Specializing on Ants

Parasitic eucharitid wasp.
  • Eucharitid wasps - Eucharitidae (56 genera) specialize in attacking the immature stages of ants. (e.g. Peeters, C., Heraty, J. & Wiwatwitaya, D. 2015. Eucharitid wasp parasitoids in the cocoons of the ponerine ant Diacamma scalpratum from Thailand. Halteres 6: 90-94.)
