Pompilid - Anoplius

Pompilid - Anoplius
fayetteville, washington County, Arkansas, USA
September 21, 2006
Size: ~12mm
perhaps in the subgenus Pompilinus... so i can not expect a species ID, however, there is no harm in trying. i have seen a number like this, one with a Salticid, which i did not get any great pictures of. so, any help welcome.

You're probably right...
it's probably something in the marginatus-complex, but that group (Pompilinus, that is) needs a revision, anyway.

fair enough
i do not think i could ask for more without having taken one, still a nice looking wasp. thank you as always Nick.
