    That's a new one to me. Thanks, Paul.

  4. Sorry to correct you, but Chlorion is not possible - Chlorion species (all over the world) never have such a hairy thorax, it is always shiny. In addition the whole body is metallic blue or green.

    I would rather put the above species near Sphex pennsylvanicus.

    Cheers
     
  5. Post your photo along with location and date information at Bugguide.net You'll likely have an answer before the day is out.

    Cheers,
