Black Potter Wasp

Rhynchium atrissima

Description:

Potter wasps are solitary wasps. They make their nests of mud. The wasp visits a wet or moist patch of sandy soil or mud, molds some mud into a ball and flies back to her chosen nest site, moulds the mud into place before flying off to collect more. The mud generally dries very quickly, so layer after layer is quickly set in place. Once the nest is complete, she starts hunting for prey.

Habitat:

Urban garden.
