Something new going after my Spicebush Swallowtail cats
I've found three different baby Spicebush Swallowtail cats that looked sort of mummified and capsule shaped, obviously parasitized by something. The cats were very small, only about 1/4 inch long when I found them and already dead.
I kept one of the capsules in a jar to see what would hatch out and it looks like a wasp or fly, barely bigger than an ant, not as big as a housefly. It has a skinny body and maybe about 1/4 inch long . It's small and flying around inside the jar so I don't think I would be able to get a picture of it.
Does anyone know what it might be? I have never seen anything hatch out of an early instar cat like that.
