Ever want to run complex queries on @inaturalist, but don't want to learn all the query string parameters? I did, so I made this tool a while ago, mostly for myself, but figured I might as well share it. navinsasikumar.github.io/inat-tools/

The nature of the larval interaction is unknown, but the behavior by the Watshamiella wasp is thought to be an adaptation that reduces its oviposition time and obviates the need for specialized structures for drilling a hole. Amazing! 4/4
This behavior (in different species of the same genera) is described in this paper: researchgate.net/publication/23… 3/4
On the right is a Sycoscapter cornutus wasp ovipositing into a fig fruiting body. On the left is a Watshamiella alata wasp, waiting for the first wasp to finish. She'll then use the hole made by the first wasp to oviposit her own egg into the plant! 2/4
This remarkable interaction, seen in #SouthAfrica by alandmanson, is our #TwoferTuesday Observation of the Day! See the entire photo sequence here: inaturalist.org/observations/1… #hymenoptera #ficus #insects #nature #biodiversity #entomology 1/4
