Pompilid - Priocnemis cornica

Pompilid - Priocnemis cornica
fayetteville, washington County, Arkansas, USA
October 6, 2006
Size: ~8mm
looks like something in the genus Ageniella... i do not really have a key for this large genus, so if there is any chance of narrowing it down, it would be appreciated. the last picture is not so great, but i think it best shows the serrate metatibia.

Moved from Spider Wasps.

Moved from Pepsinae.

Maybe...
but I can't clearly see the attachment between T1 and the propodeum, so it's hard to say (probably the best way to distinguish the two tribes). It's a female something in the subfamily Pepsinae (I'm thinking Priocnemis (Priocnemis) or Ageniella (Leucophrus or Nemagenia)).

i do not know why, but i did not think about Priocnemis at all... but now that you mention it, i can certainly see it as a possibility. thank you as always for the information Nick.
