Black and Orange Spider Wasp - Ageniella arcuata

Black and Orange Spider Wasp - Ageniella arcuata
Atco, Camden County, New Jersey, USA
June 27, 2014
Size: 10mm?
Found on winged sumac leaf. Prey was female Striped Lynx (Oxyopes salticus).

[Edit] First image from New Jersey.

Ageniella sp.
The tibial teeth look rather weak so I would venture to say A. semitincta, although the weakness may be due to the angle of the subject so I state that ID with caution.

[EDIT]: Ageniella arcuata seems to be a specialist on Lynx spiders so I am confident enough in that specialization in combination with the visible morphology to call it that species.
