This isn't an Eumenes, but Delta conoideum.

It is beautiful, but it also looks like it could light you up if it was angry.

although the coloration is differently and e.latreilli lives in australia, they could be closely related to each other indeed !

Thank you John La Salle, Hymenoptera is one of the hard identification group.

Possibly Delta rather than Eumenes. I am not too clear on the differences between these two genera.
