Cuckoo Wasp?
Dear Bugman,
I think I have a Cuckoo Wasp in my garden but I’m not sure. I’ve seen it on my flowering Sedum for the last few days. Collecting honey I guess along with many honey bees. I live in the southwest of Western Australia. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen this bug…totally blown away by its amazing colours!

Hi Julia,
Thank you for sending in your beautiful image of a gorgeous Cuckoo Wasp. The Geocities website has some additional photos of Australian specimens.
