What is the worlds smallest wasp?



Shown, at the same scale, next at a paraamecium and an amoeba.

Thus little bug lays its eggs inside the egg of another insect, the thrip. Thrips can be as small as 0.5 - 1mm, so their eggs are minute.

Called Megaphragma mymaripenne sounds like it is a tad misnamed!

Not much danger about this one attacking your jello sandwiches at the picnic!

And here's the world's largest wasp



But your sarnies are still safe, this one's name includes its favourite lunch, it's the tarantula hawk wasp.

Several thousand species in between.

Reminds me most of the psychedelic portrait that Richard Avedon took of John Lennon.
