Hi everyone, I took this picture in June 2017 in Rome, Italy. I'd like to confirm if its a Vespula germanica or other species.
I found it in a pond, seeking for some water I guess.

Thanks in advance.

V. germanica or V. vulgaris ab. pseudogermanica. Impossible to be 100% sure without frontal shot.

Many thanks, Libor for your comment. Unfortunately, I have no other picture of this wasp.

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
