Can anyone identify this colourful insect that I spotted in Nigeria - it's wingspan was about 30mm. It looks like some kind of fly or wasp?
This looks like one of the wasp/hornet mimic moths to me.
This is one of the Ctenuchid moths (family Ctenuchidae), many of which are wasp/hornet mimics (so Lewis was there)
Euchromia formosa looks like a dead ringer – see info here
