The community consists of the harlequin bug (Murgantia histrionica; Hemiptera: Pentatomidae), a herbivore on bladderpod
(Isomeris arborea; Capparaceae), and two specialist parasitoids (Trissolcus murgantiae; Hymenoptera: Scelionidae and Ooencyrtus johnsonii; Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae) that attack the bug's eggs.
The conditions also brought impressive stands of yellow-flowered bladderpod
and the blue-flowered blue phacelia.
