Clear-winged moth

7357.        I looked through a bug list of all wasps, moths and similar shaped insects and could not positively identify this insect based on markings. One list for Ontario, one for Michigan. I suspect it is an ichumen wasp or blue winged wasp along some part of its lifecycle or even a separate sub species that was not available on other sites. Where I expected a stinger at the rear of the insect was a soft fleshy translucent appendage it looked to be using to probe it’s surroundings. This was covered in small hairs. I am no expert and the lists only comprised of 200 odd-ish insects. Enterprise, Ontario. Canada


Number 7357.    This is a clear-winged moth (Lepidoptera: Sesiidae) in the genus Synanthedon. It looks like a peach tree borer – see Clear-winged moth detailed information
