Though it looks like a wasp, the creature that visited you in your hotel room is a Texas Wasp Moth, Horama panthalon, a harmless creature that mimics a stinging wasp in both its appearance and its diurnal habits. Thanks to your submission, we were also able to identify this previously unidentified Texas Wasp Moth that has been in our archives since 2007.
