While passing an apple tree August 18, on which were a brood of Datana ministra larvae about one-third grown, my attention was attracted by the presence of a large Hymenopterous parasite busily ovipositing in their soft bodies and apparently much to their discomfort. The parasite was a large black Anomalon sp. not in my collection, unless, possibly, it is a variety of A. pallitarse Cress. It differs from Cresson's description by having its middle and hind pairs of legs entirely black and its face and antennae entirely yellow.
