Earlier today I found this big wasp that got in my window somehow, and I’d like some help identifying it since I couldn’t figure out what type of wasp it was, or if it’s even a wasp! I’ve never seen a bug with an abdomen shaped like that.
This is not a wasp. It is a predatory Robber Fly in the family Asilidae. It might be a Bee Killer in the genus Promachus which is represented on BugGuide.
