  1. sphecoid wasp

    A sphecoid wasp is not a defined term in entomology. The confusion may arise from two similar terms: "Sphecidae" which refers to a family of wasps known as thread-waisted wasps and includes digger wasps, mud daubers, and other familiar types that fall in this family or "Sphex" which is a genus within the Sphecidae family. These wasps are characterized by a narrow waist and they are often solitary, nesting in the ground or in existing cavities, and many species capture and paralyze prey to provide food for their larvae.
