Neolarra Neolarra

Cool find! The genus name Neolarra aludes to the wasp-likeness of this tiny kleptoparasitic bee.


Moved from Tachytes.

Moved from ID Request.

Not a Tachytes sp.
I'm not even sure that this is a Square-headed Wasp. Look at the teeny-tiny marginal cell on the wings and it has only one sub-marginal cell.
I sent a message to Dr. Buck.
