This wasp was photographed in Fontenelle Forest, Bellevue, NE on Queen Anne's Lace. Sorry I don't have more than one view. Hope someone can help with ID.

Spider wasp.
I'm envious. This is the second specimen of the spider wasp Poecilopompilus interruptus that I have seen here on BugGuide in the last two weeks. I collected only one in the eleven years I lived in Cincinnati! Neat. This is probably a male, judging by the long,straight antennae. Nice image of a paper wasp lookalike.

Thanks Eric!!
