Strepsiptera, or twisted-wing parasites, are an enigmatic, rare, and poorly-known insect order. They are parasites of many other insect orders: strepsipteran larvae are mobile and will crawl up and into a host insect's abdomen. You can spot infected hosts by looking for tiny protrusions between the abdominal plates of the host insect. This species likely parasitizes ants. Males eventually leave the host, while females will remain in their larval form and in the host for the rest of their life.
