Here's your weekly challenge, also known as Bug of the Week. Can you identify this mystery insect? Post your answer in the comments below by next Tuesday. In one week, I'll post the answer, along with another challenge. Good luck!
Last week's insect was the peach tree borer (Synanthedon exitiosa), a clearwing moth. There moths are surprisingly good mimics of bees and wasps. Kudos to Moni and Spirula for identifying this Bug of the Week correctly.
