“The ichineumons, with long ovipositors, as the European species, Ichneumon manifestator, seek the burrows of the wood-boring insects, whose larva they are enabled to reach by means of this organ. Each species usually infests a particulat species of insect; and, singular as it may appear, many of these parasitic larvae are again preyed upon by others, whose parents are directed by an unerring instinct to the selection of the proper position for the nourishment of their arguement.” — Goodrich, 1859
