Hi Sundew

I believe your ID is correct. I have read that the pines on the thorax and the wide yellow stripes split by a narrow black stripe are diagnostic.
Whilst I cannot see the spines, the stripes are exactly the same to numberour pictures I have seen.

As far as the locale is concerned. This wasp is recorded in neighbouring counties and I am told likely to under-reported.

Thanks for your help, Gareth
