New 'Fairy' Insect Is Mind-Blowingly Small

4 posts in this topic

A new species of tiny fly named after the fairy in "Peter Pan" is mind-blowingly miniscule, with delicate wings trimmed in fringe.

Tinkerbella nana is a newly discovered species of fairyfly from Costa Rica. Fairyflies are a type of chalcid wasp, and almost all are parasites, living on the eggs and larvae of other insects.

Can't be doing with looking at pictures of miniscule insects that exist living off the larvae of other insects.

I guess there is a part for them to play in the natural world, I am just glad I don't have X-ray eyes!!
