Pachyodynerus guadulpensis female on a mud nest on a Palo Verde pod - Pachodynerus guadulpensis -
Box Canyon near Mecca, Riverside County, California, USA April 25, 2008 Size: BL about 9.25 mm, Palo Ve
This mud nest constructed in a Palo Verde pod was still hanging on the tree. The female returned to the nest several times, but I could not see what she was bringing in. I'm really curious to know who she is so I can find out more about her and her habits.
