I took this photo, in Sequoia NP, California, completely by accident! I was trying to photograph the Butterfly! Does anyone know which species of Wasp it is?
This appears to be a Sand Wasp in the tribe Bembicini, but we are uncertain of the species. It appears to us to resemble members of the genus Steniolia that are pictured on BugGuide.
Thank you very much for your really quick response. This at least gives me a starting point to look a bit deeper.
Let us know if you get a more specific identification and we can update the posting.
