Detailed Description

This is picture 5 from a 12 picture invited series by Matt Buffington ( at the USDA Parastitic Hymentoptera group using specimens from the U.S. Natural History Museum Smithsonian. Matt uses a system very similar to ours to photograph and stack this super tiny wasp. This unknown species of Peras is from Amazonian Peru. We don't know its biology, or its name. In fact, this is the only specimen of this species we know of! Isn't that amazing?!
