Hi everyone,

this chloropid was annoying an Agelestica alni specimen for several minutes. It looked like it was aiming to suck on fluids. Could that be possible? Or are there any other explanations?

Many thanks in advance.

Seems to be a bug: new posts show with 1 reply which makes it look as though it's already been answered.
