Found today at the edge of a coastal bush, 20km North of Durban, KZN, South Africa. Size around 12-14mm I would guess (could be a little off). Any help to progress the ID would be great. 5 Images

Hi Flippie, not sure - but it could be a beautiful nomada bee (male)?

Greetings, Eric

I'd suggest Crabronidae, Larrini, something like Liris diabolica (Smith, 1873)
While others can't climb, using infinite pains,
I, gravity turning to jest,
Ascend, with all ease, perpendicular planes,
Rough or smooth, just as pleases me best.

An expert opinion from Alexander V. Antropov (Moscow): Liris haemorrhoidalis (Fabricius, 1804). Reaching as far north as Morocco, Spain, Israel, and Iraq.

Seems to be a bug: new posts show with 1 reply which makes it look as though it's already been answered.
