Eumenes mediterraneus

This potter wasp is a recent introduction to the NYC region. (You may remember that I helped in confirming the identification). Is it benign, is it invasive? Probably too soon to tell. I’ve generally seen them gathering nectar, but like other wasps they’re carnivores, too. This one had a caterpillar of some kind.

Here’s another that was nearby.
