Scoliid wasp

Unidentified scoliid wasp on the leaves of the hibiscus near my bedroom window

An attempt to identify this wasp using internet resources tells me that it's probably in the genus Scolia, but I have no idea what species it is. I can find species with the yellow band on the head, and species with an all black body, but not with both. It was trying to dry off after I watered my ferns and palms.

  1. Oh, wow, this one is really weird. At first I thought it might be a mason or a beewolf, but they have more yellow bands on the abdomen. Good luck identifying it :D
