Unknown Hymenoptera - Myzinum dubiosum - female

Unknown Hymenoptera - Myzinum dubiosum - Female
Lakelalnd, Polk County, Florida, USA

Size: 12 mm
Is this a scoliid or tiphiid wasp? It isn't in the guide. The hind legs look very much like the other scoliids I've collected. It is hard to see the wing veination. Any further suggestions would be appreciated. Its abdomen is extremely similar to another picture I have in bugguide which was a Myzinum wasp.
