Hi Guys,
Nearly Christmas, all the best to you and yours and all the visitors to WTB.
This little wasp is about 10mm long. The dark dot to the right of its head is a burrow it has dug into an Ironbark tree. The hole is about 1 to 1.5mm diameter.
I think it is probably something in the potter wasp family having markings quite similar to this one.

What do you think?
Have a good holiday season all and lets hope for a better year next year.

Probably Potter Wasp

Hi Trevor,
Your wasp does look quite similar to the
Paralastor sp. which is pictured on the Brisbane Insect website.  We are content with that identification.  Thanks for the holiday cheer.
