I got to genus based on gestalt on BugGuide, and the fact that BG says Sphex specialize in katydids as hosts for their kids, and I observed at least one bury a katydid. There were many wasps in this area, which had sandy soil and abundant flowers nearby. Also seems like the only BG option in Sphex with a pure orange abdomen.

Much finer pics of the same species by, ironically, the *other* iNaturalist at http://bugguide.net/node/view/298393/bgimage

Lighter than Satyrium auretorum, and the latter apparently never holds its wings open. Sitting on its host, Quercus chrysolepis. Only 2-3 individuals seen, which is apparently unusual.
