Scelionid wasps generally live under fallen leaves. These wasps are known to parasitize a great many insect species, and especially their eggs. The scelionid wasp pictured was fossilized while flying, and is no different from present-day specimens. This 25-million-year scelionid wasp preserved in amber shows that these insects, like all other creatures, did not evolve.
