Maybe something in/near Pachodynerus?


I'm not terribly confident about that guess, though, so wait to hear what the experts have to say. :)

 
Right guess
A male Pachodynerus erynnis, just like the one on the tagged photograph.

 
The thumbnail
is P. nasidens. Which one is it?

 
Oops! Pachodynerus nasidens, of course...
Because P. erynnis is the "red one". My mistake...

 
Thanks!
Certainly does look like a Pachodynerus species. See whether anyone comes up with anything different. Many thanks.
