Black Potter Wasp

Rhynchium atrissima


Black wasp, about 2cm in body length. It has orange antennae. Its wings have orange and black coloration. IDd as Rhynchium atrissima, similar to my other spotting - Potter wasps (or mason wasps) are a cosmopolitan wasp group presently treated as a subfamily of Vespidae, but sometimes recognized in the past as a separate family, Eumenidae.


Backyard, spotted on Heliconia leaf and seen nectaring on Yellow Alder flower.
