Moved from Leucospis affinis.

John, thanks for another id. This male seemed to be quite a bit smaller than the female I previously photographed.

Leucospis affinis

This is a MALE leucospidid! Nice find. Note there is no ovipositor curling over its back. Outstanding image as usual, too.

Thanks Eric
this male was smaller than the females I saw last year.
