All-Black Thread-waisted Wasp - Prionyx - female

All-Black Thread-waisted Wasp - Prionyx - Female
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
May 31, 2015
Size: 22mm
I'm fairly sure that this Thread-waisted Wasp is a female Prionyx atratus or Prionyx subatratus. I'm not sure if there is a way to tell them apart without a DNA test.
Please compare to the male that I filmed: ♂
