Parasitoid Palooza! Or What Ate My Caterpillar or Chrysalis

This monarch chrysalis is filled with tachinid fly larvae, about to emerge. (Photo by Kathy Keatley Garvey)

So you're trying to rear monarch butterflies. You notice an egg on your milkweed plant, and watch its life cycle from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis.  Aha, you think, soon I'll be able to see an adult monarch eclose from that chrysalis. Not so...

A PiƱata That Only Entomologists Could Love

The Halloween party invitation from the Bohart Museum of Entomology featured an Acroceridae fly and larva. (Images the work of Nicole Tam, UC Davis alumnus)

Have you ever hit a piñata? Hit it and smashed it to smithereens?   It was probably a Fiesta-ish piñata--maybe a colorful unicorn, donkey, or pony, right?   Bet it wasn't a fly.   And bet it wasn't a fly from the genus...
