Species text
This ruby tailed wasp is a parasitoid on the eumenid wasps Odynerus spinipes and O. melanocephalus (Morgan, 1984). In Essex the species is very rare, with a good population in the Chafford Hundred area of Thurrock, but otherwise known from just a single record in north-east Essex. References
