Thank you Daniele. I found interesting/amusing that Hübner in 1819 named 18 butterflies from the Argonaut compagnons of Jason and Linné at 1758 named a series of butterflies with names from Greek and Trojan heroes of the Iliad.

Thank you Paul, I looked on Pellenes but the pattern on the back is a little different. I'll try to search more.

I edited the spot to add two macro photos of the head.
You can now see the ocelli and some details around the mouth.
(I took some pictures with the phone and some with my reflex camera but I transferred the reflex photos later).

Caution: despite the name "velvet ant" this is a wasp with a painful sting.
