@juan_sphex

@raycama

Do you guys know if it’s a territorial behavior when two of these will zoom through the air? In the same manner as male X. virginica? Or is that always two females having a dispute over foraging on Asclepias? Or a mating/courtship ritual? It’s a constant and reliable behavior about which I’ve always been curious. Thanks:)

Description

I found this small (~9mm length) velvet ant running down a road in a suburban neighborhood and captured it for some shots. It was identified by an expert on BugGuide as Timulla vagans:
bugguide.net/node/view/68201
Detailed images of this individual posted at:
bugguide.net/node/view/678260
So-called velvet ants (Mutillidae) are actually wasps. The males have wings and broadly resemble other wasps. The females are flightless and often rather hairy. They are parasitoids of other hymenoptera (sometimes other insects) and the females are seen racing around, apparently in search of hosts. Large species have a nasty sting, but I do not know about these. Members of this genus are reported to form a Mullerian mimicry complex:
