New Wasp

This wasp has captured a nymph treehopper. Now, most wasps I see that look sort of like this feed their young caterpillars.
So what’s this? Well, it seems to be a Hoplisoides genus sand wasp. Not at all one of the potter and mason wasps I originally thought it might be. I hadn’t even heard of this genus before, and I thought I was pretty good on the wasps for a non-specialist.
