Looks very similar to the emerald cockroach wasp.
Beautiful wasp opzjon..
thanks bayucca. i'm also torn between spider wasp and the emerald cockroach wasp being the latter very similar in terms of color. :)
Pompilidae, Pepsinae, Auplopus sp., so not even the same family ;-)...http://www.whatsthatbug.com/2011/03/01/s...
I am not sure if this one really is Ampulex compressa. But indeed very similar. In my eyes Ampulex compressa should have orange parts in both, hindlegs and "middle" legs. Might be from the same family and tribe or something others like a mimic of Ampulex.http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/...http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/181...http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/169...http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/326...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emerald_coc...
