Description:
Coeloides vancouverensis (Dalla Torre) ovipositing through Douglas-fir bark onto Douglas-fir beetle larvae.  This photo shows that in the laboratory rearing program the thickness of the bark had been routinely shaved to a thickness less than the ovipositor length to allow easy access to the host.  In the field, thick bark provides sanctuary except in crevices and tree tops.
