Abstract:

The fourth episode of Life In The Undergrowth, Intimate Relations, shows us that the world of invertebrates is a web of relationships with plants and other animals. It is a program full of incredible stories including unique footage of the world's smallest insect - a fairy wasp only a quarter of a millimetre long that flies underwater, in order to find the eggs of water beetles in which to lay its own brood. Then there is the blister beetle, whose larvae huddle together on the end of a piece of grass and mimic a female bee. When a male bee attempts to mate with the "female", the larvae grab onto his belly. Confused, he flies away and searches for a real female. When he eventually finds her and mates with her, the beetle larvae hurriedly swap from his front onto her back - and hence get carried back to her nest where they eat pollen supplies. The finale to the program is the story of the blue butterfly which tricks ants into rearing its caterpillars inside their own nest.
