Tachinid Fly (Adejeania vexatrix) Zion
Not uncommon along the North Rim Grand Canyon, these flies parasitize arthropods. The egg for this species is laid directly on the host and attached with a sticky glue. Now it would'n't do any good to cause the demise of your food source, so the three different instars only feed on fat stores and other non-lethal areas of host insects. Probably a lot more than you ever wanted to know...
