Planidia are free-living, mobile first-instar larvae that are notable in their ability to transition on a single host between different larval stadia, and for completing their development on the host prepupa as ectoparasitoids, effectively acting as larval-pupal external koinobionts. Within Chalcidoidea, a mega-diverse superfamily of parasitoid wasps, taxa with a planidium form a monophyletic group, the Planidial-Larva-Clade (PLC), which has been comprised of three recognized groups: Eutrichosomatinae (Pteromalidae), Perilampidae (Chrysolampinae, Perilampinae, Philomidinae and the unplaced...
