This page contains pictures and information about Tachinid
Flies Subfamily Tachininae that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.
This fly was checking a group of sawfly larvae. The
fly has the grey thorax and brownish-yellow abdomen.
The above pictures show a Tachinid Fly checking the Leaf Beetle Larvae and
about to lay eggs on the larvae. The white eggs of the fly are attached on
the body of the larva. The egg hatches into maggot and bores into the body
of the Leaf Beetle larva, develops inside and kill the larva.
