Pomp orange - Poecilopompilus algidus

Pomp orange - Poecilopompilus algidus
Holla Bend NWR, Pope County, Arkansas, USA
September 25, 2007
Size: 25mm
Another Poecilopompilus?? If so, I saw 15 to 20 separate individuals in this field nectaring. And damn they were hard to shoot. This is a shot of one kind of hopping flying to the next nectar.

Moved from Poecilopompilus.

Moved from Spider Wasps.

there should be no other genus of pompiline spider wasp with this coloration. This should be P. algidus.
