Ruby-tailed Wasp

Ruby-tailed Wasp
This amazing insect was discovered crawling around the window-ledge at Burton Mere Wetlands reception. Possibly Chrysis ignita, but there are other very similar species.

This is probably Chrysis Ignita as you say. It is the most common of the Ruby Tailed Wasps in the UK, it is also the right time of year. Some of the Ruby Tailed Wasp species are very rare.

Thanks Minty - a local entomological society member was on hand and he was of the opinion that it wasn't one of the rarities.
