What kind of wasp is this? - Zethus spinipes - female

What kind of wasp is this? - Zethus spinipes - Female
Dallas, Dallas County, Texas, USA
August 2, 2016
Found at White Rock lake, Sunset Bay, off the pier on Indian Potato plant flowers mid morning. Thread waisted. Not seen this coloration before. Can you tell species and maybe gender? I have 9 shots in all, understand if you end up frassing some of them. Will add the addition views. Have cropped all to just the bug.

thank you
Can you tell gender?

 
No clue.
Perhaps others will know.

 
Female
6 abdominal segments = ♀
The males usually have antennae with a bent apex. :)

 
thank you
I like to identify gender in my gallery and on Inaturalist when I can.
