This page contains pictures and information about Yellow Flank Black Braconid Wasps that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.

Female, body length  15mm                        
This species look very similar to the Callibracon capitator species. We distinguished them by the very long ovipositor and the orange-coloured antenna base segment of this species.
