Hi Marco, if you've time to spare and want to see a few more wasps try http://www.ispot.org.za/search/node/Hyme... ,a bit restricted geographically compared with PN but it has its virtues.

Do you have a reference? (not in my insect book)

almost certainly correct; perhaps it was badly nourished as a larva

Thanks for the references, do these plants just start out green and change permenantly or do they resurrect after good rain. I've seen the herbarium specimens - jet black throughout.

Pamsai did you sort out your "green" problem, I managed to improve my over- yellow photos by fiddling with the blue balance while editing and now I'm more careful where I set the white balance on the camera when I'm shooting in artificial light

thanks for the warning oliver02517.

I always try Tiz, especially with things which could be dangerous for my cats & dogs but some of them make that a pretty hard goal to accomplish.

My mother-in-law was once bitten by a nasty scorpian and she said later that she'd rather go through child birth again than another bite !
