Entypus unifasciatus
This is Entypus unifasciatus. There are only two species of Entypus in our part of the country, this one and E. fulvicornis (lacks subapical yellowish spot on anterior wing). I actually think this is a male, the turned down end of the abdomen looks like a subgenital plate and when I enlarged the picture I thought I could count 13 antennal segments. There isn't as great a dimorphism in the Pepsini as there is in say, the Pompilini, but that's just a minor thing:-)

Thanks Nick
