White, female, wingless wasp with black legs, underside and antennae.
"Velvet Ant" refers to the hairy nature and the body form like that of ants. Females wingless, very hairy, and may look like large ants but have no node (bump) on "waist" between abdomen and thorax (ants have one or two). Males winged, less hairy, look more like typical wasps, larger than females." - BugGuide
