    Just wondering if this is a snipe fly – Spaniopsis? It's only the second time I've seen one in my garden and the first time I've been able to photograph it. It was resting briefly on a Chinese lantern (Abutilon) leaf.

    Physical Description

    This largish black and grey wasp (Tachytes?) has sealed four holes so far in my 'bee hotel'. I haven't caught her in the process of sealing the holes yet, but have seen her (or maybe more than one) going in and out and buzzing inside the holes. Also have not seen her carrying any paralysed insects into the holes either.
