Discover the fascinating world of chalcid wasps, which are smaller than a grain of rice and come in a variety of glossy colours.
Although beautiful to look at, many species are in fact deadly parasitoids that lay their eggs inside other insects.
See some fascinating specimens from the collection and find out how Museum scientists study these wasps, which are barely visible to the naked eye.
