Southern Bee Killer - Mallophora orcina

Southern Bee Killer - Mallophora orcina
Durham, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
July 7, 2005
A "lifer" on my birthday! I wasn't sure in the field that this wasn't a Laphria, but this photo shows the fine antennae which are supposed to be diagnostic of Mallophora. Interesting little pair of pale dots on the back of the thorax, not sure if they mean anything.
