Tiphiid Wasp? - Dielis trifasciata - male

Tiphiid Wasp? - Dielis trifasciata - Male
Jupiter, Florida, USA
June 19, 2004
Shot on the underside of a palm with several other individuals. I think it is a Tiphiid...can anyone confirm?

Campsomeris trifasciata, male
The bright yellow coloration separates this from C. plumipes, along with yellow on the legs. The lack of red setae on the apical abdominal segments separates this from C. fulvohirta.

Moved from Campsomeris.

Scoliidae: Campsomeris

Could be....
Hard to tell. I am not terribly familiar with the fauna of the southeast. Definitely a male, and most likely a Myzinum tiphiid or a scoliid of some kind. Males in both families can have the "pseudostinger" seen on this specimen.
