Hello Forum,

this might be a larva from a Pachygaster spec. Jrgen Peters reported me on about his thread with a similar picture in

What can be said additionally? Is a closer ID possible? I found the larva on a leaf of Urtica dioica and, quite obviously, it fed on this plant.

Hagen, NRW, Germany, alder marshland, 175 msm, October 7th 2008

Best wishes, Josef
