Conops vesicularis

The adults of the Conopidae are 14 mm long, diurnal and are often found at flowers and feed on nectar.

Their larvaes are endoparasites, actually in bees and wasps. The copulation varies from about 20 minutes up to 2 hours, while the male is positioned above the female. Females wait on plants to attack foraging wasps or bees to place their eggs on the host. If more then one egg is placed in a single host, only one larva will survive. In the final stage of the attack, the Conopidae can mimic the zig-zag flight of it’s target. The larvae penetrate into the abdomen of the hosts. After the hibernation in the dead host, the Conopidae hatch out again.

Nabis limbatus (Nabidae)

The Nabis limbatus is a type of damsel bug in the family Nabidae. Worldwide there are 21 genera and over 500 species.

They are predators and they are catching almost any other insects which are smaller than themselves. Cannibalism exists if they don’t find enough food. They are a helpful species in the modern and organic agriculture because of their predation on many types of crop pests.

The mushroom is a Panaeolina foenisecii, commonly called the mower’s mushroom, haymakers mushroom.
