Club-horned (Sapygid) Wasp  (three photos)
Krombeinopyga aculeata

solitary wasp Sapygidae
I found this solitary wasp from the family Sapygidae at the Jordanelle Dam wetlands. Since this wasp is covered
in pollen, it is hard to tell there are also some yellow markings. Carol Davis, 6-23-2012

black sapygidae
The female of this family of wasps lays her eggs in the nest of solitary bees. When the larvae  hatch
they consume the bees and the food in the nest (according to Bugguide).

wasp with pointed abdomen
The pointed abdomen made me think this wasp was something new for me.
