Just curious...
How did you determine the genus?

have the ocellar triangle with the anterior angle approximately rectangular.

Maybe I'm particularly dense tonight, but...
... for the life of me I can't understand that explanation. :)

Thanks for taking the time to provide, it though! I'll keep working on it.

Ocellar triangle
... whereas in other genera the anterior angle is more obtuse. You will find it easy to see the difference when you compare images.

...I see it now. Many thanks for your patience.

Moved from Crabronini.
