Today I witnessed the emergence of a parasitoid wasp witch I found in the caterpillar nest of the Red Admiral (Vanessa Atalanta). Unfortunately the emergence took place very quickly and the emerged wasp only rested for a few seconds before she flew away. I tried to find a photo on internet but after reading a lot I think it must be Cotesia vestalis. Please let me know if it is an other wasp species.
