Pteromalus puparum


How many wasps do you think can come out of one, average sized Yellow Admiral pupa?
A lot!
This is a chrysalis that Hugh and I found in the wild and isolated it. Thankfully!
Once I’m positive the wasps are dead (they’re in the freezer) I will count them, but I can see about 90, although there are more hiding under the tissues.
