Hi All

I am struggling with this wasp.

I thought that I would have enough features in the photos but I can't be sure.
The abdominal markings are very similar to Diphyus quadripunctorius but the
lower rear legs become reddish rather than dark.

The other one in the frame is Amblyteles armatorius but again the rear legs are
marked differently from the one in my photo.

Both these wasps seemt o be poorl;y recorded but within the locale.

Could someone kindly ID this for me?

Yours, Gareth

Hi Gareth, it's neither Diphyus quadripunctorius nor Amblyteles armatorius. I think all imortant feature are visible and I'll try to find the right male but it will take a while.
Greetings, Eric

Hi Eric

I have noticed (a bit late in the day) that there are two different indiviuals. The rear legs are different.
Now I really am confused..................

There were a large number of these wasps moving through medium grass, on the edge of a woodland ride.
They seldom landed, flew poorly, bumping into the stems as though they were blind.

Yours, Gareth

Hi Gareth, your first image shows a male Amblyteles armatorius indeed - the arrows point to the 2 thorns near the scutellum.
