Photo Gallery - Spider Wasps

 

Some species of wasps are known to parasitize spiders by delivering a paralysing sting and using them to provision their nests and provide food for their young. These photos were taken from Trinidad and Tobago as well as other islands in the Eastern Caribbean. The location the specimen was collected from is given in brackets below the name and description.

Many thanks to my colleagues who allowed me to post some of their photos.
