Description

This creature had a tendency to dig. It had been rescued and put outside, and its fondest wish was to disappear underground. It is strangely reminiscent of the four banded digger bee that I posted last year, but is more elongated and is not a bee!

Could be this genus but not sure. The wasp was about 25mm long. It was visiting Gomphocarpus physocarpus. However, I didn’t notice it at the flowers. Perhaps it came for some aphids

Ab(d)ominable tapper


Why would this 22mm (approx body-length) fellow tap the end of his abdomen repeatedly against the Iboza leaf? What are those tiny white spheres? If he^s indeed a Tiphiid, they can^t be eggs because she wouldn^t have wings ...

EDIT: Presumably not egg-laying, but pheremone spreading?
