Black coated, orange legged type of Scorpion wasp (?), about 2 cm long
Lars, the colour would fit both species. However, it appears that Dolichomitus imperator has a somewhat longer and more slender abdomen. I don't know about the sting, most pictures show D. imperator with a very long one, though this might vary between males and females.
Thanks Meik....it could also possibly the Dolichomitus imperator. What do you think?
This looks like Pimpla instigator (schwarze Schlupfwespe).
Lat: 53.47, Long: 10.37
