Wasp night roosting aggregation - Myzinum quinquecinctum -
Coles County, Illinois, USA August 31, 2008 Size: 2-3 cm
One of many night roosting aggregations of these wasps found on the tips of horsetail about 3 m from the edge of a shallow pond. I'm interested in studying this behavior and was hoping to get an ID on the insect.
