Zanna nobilis

_MG_3704Personally, this is quite difficult to find this insect in my area. I believed that this insect, Zanna nobilis may common and easy to find in some particular places._MG_3704-1

Now in August 2013, after more or less 20 years when i was first time met this insect, finally I found it again. Is that too long? ;). Many thanks to Mr Laz Govn (the land owner) for showing us this insect on 3 trees in his land.

_MG_3706That was a story behind this finding. So now, i have special date to remember ;).

Picture below show an unidentified object in the body of P. sultanus. According to reliable information, perhaps it is Dryinidae attack.

“These are solitary Wasps whose larvae are parasitoids on other insects. The only known hosts are Hemiptera, especially leafhoppers. The eggs are injected into the host using a sharp ovipositor and the larva spends its early stages feeding internally on the host, but when larger, it starts to protrude from the abdomen of the host and develops a hardened sac-like “case” to protect its vulnerable body while continuing to feed on the host, which is eventually killed.”
