Philanthus pulchellus

Order Hymenoptera
No Taxon Aculeata
No Taxon Apoid Wasps (Apoidea)
Family Crabronidae
Subfamily Philanthinae
Genus Philanthus - Beewolves

Crabronidae (Latreille, 1802) is a large family of wasps, that includes nearly all of the species formerly comprising the now-defunct superfamily Sphecoidea. It collectively includes well over 200 genera, containing well over 9000 species. Crabronids were originally a part of Sphecidae, but the latter name is now restricted to a separate family based on what was once the subfamily Sphecinae. As this change is very recent, it seems likely that the subfamilies of Crabronidae will each eventually be treated as families in their own right, as they have been treated as such by many authorities in the past (as in the catalog linked below).
