Medium sized wasps (1/4-3/8 inch) reddish brown bodies with yellow strips on the thorax. The legs are also yellow.


Common in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador. They build there nest under some sort of shelter. If there are houses, the eaves or porches provide the best places.


These wasps aren't particularly aggressive. Very easy to photograph. They seem to make a nest 3-4 inches long and move on to another.
