Spider Wasp with prey - Priocnemis minorata - Female
Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA

I've been observing this "colony" for 2 seasons. This year (2006) I saw my first female on April 11.

Moved
Moved from Blue-Black Spider Wasps.

I moved this with the understanding that after Nick saw the original footage he determined
this to be P. minorata . Nick - if I am mistaken let me know!!!

You might want to change that to "Crab Spider" :)

 
haha
thanks. p and b arent even close on the keyboard, dont know where that came from

 
Where that came from...
P and B sound very much alike- for some people, they're identical as pronounced at the end of a word. Also, you may have been influenced by the P in the next word.

i cant
tell about the other spider, but this one is a running crab spider, Philodromidae, Thanatus sp.

 
redetermination
This Pompilid is likely Anoplius tenebrosus (not P. minorata).
Thanks to Nicholas Fensler for the help.
