Moved from Spider Wasps.

Anoplius...
looks to be one of the species in the subgenus Pompilinus, which are virtually impossible to ID to species from normal photos.

 
Thanks again
Now that I made the move, I wonder if you would rather have these at Anoplius? Please let me know and I can move up one level.

Thanks!
I've moved to the guide for now to see if I can get a confirmation on Anoplius.
