p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Tiny Digger Wasps Crossocerus sp Mating


I have seen this species quite often, running over foliage, in my garden. They move rapidly and turn frequently and then fly to another leaf to start again. This was the only chance to get images.

I can't remember if I ever identified it.

The female seems to have a larger head as well as a broader abdomen.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro,1/1600 & 1/640 at f9 ISO 4,000, hand-held.

Thanks, Brian.

I did hesitate for a long time as to whether it was a bee or a wasp.

It looks like a Crossocerus sp.
