This was in my garden at the beginning of October. I think it is probably S.lappona but I would be grateful for an expert opinion.
Thanks
Peter

Hi Peter,
Yes, it appears to be S lappona, although the marking are quite well
developed for lappona, the Blood-red scutellum Twisted Evil clinches it!
Cheers, Mick

Hello,
I'm sorry to disagree, but it's a typical female S. silentis (yellow tipped abdomen and rather broad bands).

Regards,
Stéphane.

Very definitely S. silentis - the abdominal markings are quite wrong for S.lappona and although the scutellu appears red I think this is a photographic aberation.

Regards

Roger

Sorry to be so long in replying, but thanks to Stephane & Roger for your help. It's still a new one for me so I'm happy.
