About 3 to 4 mm. Photographed on October 30, 2011 in the wetland of The Pond Suarez in Motril, Granada, Spain.

This insect, according to Antoni Ribes, expert Web portal, Virtual Biodiversity, is within the family Eupelmidae. And it is not described new species, at least in Spain.

Does anyone have any reference of this little bug?

Thanks and Regards

Bonjour Camille

Avec la clef de Ferrire (1938) on arrive pour cet insecte au couplet qui regroupe Neanastatus africanus Ferrire, 1938 et Neanastatus turneri Ferrire, 1938. Mes exemplaires du Maroc sont tiquetts N. africanus, mais cest N. turneri qui est connu dEspagne Pninsulaire daprs Askew et Nieves-Aldrey (2006) (et des Iles Canaries daprs divers auteurs dont les rfrences figurent dans cet article disponible en PDF sur internet). Il semble cependant y avoir des diffrences de coloration, mais difficiles apprcier sur photo.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
