I saw wasp trying to oviposit in a bee hotel in a garden and am curious about the yellow triangle on the orange stripe at the "bottom" of the thorax; no other P.erynnis pictured on BG has it.

Moved from Potter and Mason Wasps. The metanotum always has an orange or red stripe in this species, the triangle appears to be dirt (maybe pollen).

Moved from ID Request.
