the place i got the specimen (its encased in resin) labelled it as a wasp and some of the markings are different. but i suppose this is the closest ill get, thankyou!
having done some further research thees all look suspiciously similar in pattern - where did you get the encased specimen from? a location might help size etc try these on google:
philippinensis (although has black head)
its difficult to tell from the markings and wether the resin has altered some colours on the abdomen and to the eyes....
hope this helps you specify
thats fantastic! i found an entire website devoted to the exact wasp!
thankyou so much, i spent hours trying to find it!
