Moved--error
Somehow managed to move this both from and to the same place. I found it in ID Request and tried to move it to here, Polistes perplexus, on the basis of comments by others.

 
I think what happened maybe
is that you thought it was in ID request since I put a thumbnail link to it on this image:
which I recently posted to ID request.
