A hairy wasp (Scoliidae). This insect was probably 30 - 35 mm in length.
Spotted on Brazilian button flower (Centratherum punctatum) in a large semi-urban yard & garden situated next to a disturbed patch of remnant forest.
This was the first time I've ever seen this comparatively large Scoliid wasp species.
