Strange little wasp with a short stiff ovipositor. About 7mm in length, all shiny black with short hairs and bright orange-red legs. The abdomen appears to have a waist. I only got two shots off before it was gone.


Resting on a leaf, semi-rural residential area, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico 2,200 meters.
