Hi

This is a female scoliid. The visibility of the wing veins isn't perfect, but it does seem to belong in tribe Campsomerini. For a more precise ID it's essential to know where the picture was taken.

Cheers,

Discoelius.

Hello
Klaus, thanks for the geographical details. Considering those, and on your wasp's colour pattern, the strongest candidate is Dielis pilipes (=Campsomeris pilipes) [see for example http://bugguide.net/node/view/60772/bgpage or http://bugguide.net/node/view/469023/bgimage]. Scoliids are somewhat variable, so we can't rule out a colour variety of one of the other Nearctic campsomerines, but your specimen does look just like D. pilipes and besides the species is known to occur in that part of the United States, so I think your wasp may easily be D. pilipes.

Cheers,

Discoelius.
