Hello,

is it possible to distinguish this one from similar species? What would I have to look for?

Thanks and regards,

Markus

If it is 10mm (even if it is somewhat smaller, say 8 Smile), it is a female H nobile. H, niemelai female is definitlely smaller, below 6mm, otherwise inpossible to distingush by photos, since the distinguishing character is the shape of the tip of the last sternite.

Greetings,

Henrik

Thanks a lot, Henrik! Yes, it was clearly larger than 6 mm. It was one of the biggest cuckoo wasps I've seen.

Thanks Paul, interesting point

'Holding' might not be the perfect description. Apparently the armature makes contact with sensitive places on the female, coaxing her to agree to mate.

16.11.17 13:43
Is was not quite sure whether the word would apply correctly, but, yes, that is okay.

15.11.17 11:29
How about armature, would that fit? based on http://onlinelibra
ry.wiley.com/doi/1

.2008.00422.x/pdf
it would seem that these spines etc are used to hold the female!

14.11.17 09:22
All spines, ridges, lobes, etc. on the femur.

14.11.17 08:36
I think bewaffnung is like weapons (on femur 1).

13.11.17 13:10
Hello can any1 tell me how to translate bewaffnung des femur 1? Thx
