Certainty?
How certain are you of this ID now? Wouldn't it have been more prudent to wait for solid confirmation?

 
reason for uncertainty?
do you know of a reason to doubt it?

Moved
Moved from Parasitic Yellowjacket. Moved to subfamily for now.

V. consobrina?
How did you rule out V. consobrina?

This looks more like consobrina because of the lack of an oculo- maler space which characterizes Vespula species


 
thanks for pointing that out
I simply was unaware of Vespula consobrina.
