This is among the wanted species I’m looking for. Penthicodes (Ereosoma) quadrimaculata Lallemand, 1963. ID by Jerome Constant. Unfortunately, I did not bring along my Tripod by the time I found it. So, time to use whatever around me including a stick 😉
Thanks to the land owner for allowing us to enter his land. We have to get a permission first from the land owner (as always) and for that, I should thanks to Mr. Ron Eldie for these arrangements. Off course, Mr.Simon Shim is always there 😉 . So.. that was our 6th trips to this area so far (our recent trips was on 12/4/2015). I guess more trips coming soon 😉 . Sorry for my bad English. I can’t speak English actually 😉
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.”
