Description

Single individual observed hunting primarily in branches of sweetgum tree. What I find interesting about this species at this location is that it prefers by and large to hunt in higher areas, rather than lower to the ground, like many of the other wasps here. 90F, sunny, humid.

Nests are frequently constructed in shaded niches, often just inside of windows or vent openings, and it may take a female only a day to construct a cell requiring dozens of trips carrying mud. Females will add new cells one by one to the nest after each cell is...
