Essex Red Data List comment
cleptoparasite on Gorytes

Species text
The wasp is widely distributed in the southern half of England, and the majority of Essex records are in the East Thames Corridor. It is a cleptoparasite of the wasps Gorytes quadrifasciatus and G. bicinctus and is recorded from a variety of open habitats on light soils, including heathland, dry grassland and scrub, open woodland, coastal landslip and soft rock cliffs, quarries and post industrial sites (Edwards & Telfer 2001).
