I have been looking for a while and come up empty.

What do you think about exchanging out amata images and see what we have in common? My email is:

I could not say for certain, but I think the size is largely dependent on how well they fed as larva. I know this is true for the solitary wasps.

The amata that I spotted was not noticeably BIG, but the markings on the body and wings look identical to yours.

Isn't it? I also have some pics of Amata, but this one is bigger than the others.. much bigger..

I have several images of this amata sp. but have never found any images on the web, other than yours. Hardly surprising as we are based in the same city. I suspect that this is a local sub species. I guess we will never know.
