Description:

Interesting waspy-looking thingy, deep south of France.
As usual, the nearest I can get in Chinery for this lovely character is something like a Digger Wasp, judging by the particularly long, fine abdominal attachment (I've seen a technical term for that but can't remember it).

Thanks again, David

Ah ha, yes, "petiole", that was the very technical term I was trying to remember. So, thanks both for the id. and vocabulary extension.
