Excellent quality photo. This is chalcid wasp (Pteromalidae, Chalcidoidea) probably attacking a host larva inside a tree bud.

Arp :o)

Wow - interesting specimen. Is this the only image you have? I\'m certainly not doubting the ID by Michael Geiser, but the specimen seems to have a mix of characters for decipiens and sudetica. I rarely ever (never?) see the legs so dark on decipiens and there also seems to be a clear dark streak along the suture. On the other hand the pronotum seems to fit decipiens better and it is unclear if the tip of the elytra is darkened (do you have an image where this is less shaded?) Cheers! Arp

Hi Stanislav, Did you collect this specimen? I doubt very much that it would be Cantharis decipiens - too pale and with the suture so black? What about Metacantharis clypeata? I don\'t know that species well enough for positve ID, but to me it would seem to be a much more likely candidate :-/ Cheers, Arp
