Wasp? - Epyris - female

Wasp? - Epyris - Female
Norfolk, Virginia, USA
December 9, 2007
Size: 6mm
Sort of a funny shaped head for a wasp, but I don't know what else it could be.

Where did you find this wasp so late in the season?

If I Remember...
correctly, Dec/Jan 07/08 were unseasonably warm months. I found it in a bamboo thicket in marshy habitat.

Moved from Bethylidae.

This is female of genus Epyris
This is one of the genus Epyris (Bethylidae).

I believe its in the family Bethylidae, see here.

That looks...
like a good ID, at least to family Bethylidae. Thanks!
