A bit weak in some areas, but yes, a great starting place. Butterfly circle is a top site too, with most of it being relevant to Indonesia.

FOBI is a website of Indonesian fauna and wildlife. One of my main points of reference.

Thanks!
What is this FOBI that you speak of? Is there some insect identification book for Indonesia that I don't know about??

Ropalidia fasciata is close, but it is not quite there. It is a great shame that FOBI does not cover wasps very well. I have so many unidentified.
