Ammophila sp.

Common Names:Hunting Wasp, Thread-waisted Wasp

Habitat:Mostly occurring in the warmer regions of all continents apart from Antarctica.

Description: they are medium-sized wasps of strikingly slender build, with antennae about as long as the head plus thorax.

Comments: Nesting is generally by digging an unbranched tunnel in sandy soil, but provisioning can be progressive, the mother bringing prey as the larva requires it, or mass provisioning, each nest being provided with a single large prey item, or as many small prey items as should be required.
