This page contains pictures and information about Yellow Flank Black Head Braconid Wasps that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.

Confusing isn't it? This wasp looks the same as the wasp above except its head is black in colour and with shorter ovipositor. It was also found in Karawatha Forest on Nov 2007.

Picture taken in Yugarapul Park on Nov 2008. This wasp seems like to rest on stem as we always found them there. Also found this wasp in Carbrook Wetland.
