A 20 mm black wasp with striking thin white markings on thorax and abdomen. Head and legs showed diffuse white patches. Legs showed short spikes and appeared unusually long and were held spread out around the body like a spider.
Spotted making a burrow in soil beside a walking track.
This 12mm long wasp was working in a fresh tree hole (E ironbark) coming and going every 60 seconds. I blocked the hole for a minute to get some shots when she returned. Similar to other Paralastor but the main abdominal band has a distinct notch.
