Moved
Moved from Gorytina.

Not sure
potter or mason wasp I think. Maybe in Ancistrocerus, but I often confuse them with Eumenes. One of the experts will know it for sure.

 
Gorytini or Nyssonini (Crabronidae)
John Ascher and/or Matthias Buck will know at least the genus for sure. Digging behavior rather suggests a free living species, hence a member of the Gorytini tribe.

 
Definitely Gorytini
it looks like a Hoplisoides
