pompilid - Priocnemis cornica
fayetteville, washington County, Arkansas, USA

Size: ~7-8mm
i like Priocnemis... perhaps P. cornica, as it should be more widespread in my area.

Moved from Spider Wasps.

Moved from Pepsinae.

Very good guess. Size is right, and you can just make out the serrations on the hind tibia.

thanks Eric, little devil would not stay still, and it was difficult to get a picture at all. where might be a good place for it to be, that is to say, how comfortable are you with that genus.
