Holopyga fervida

Another "swimming pool victim" and one of my very few images of Cuckoo-wasps that actually got to get a name, thanks to Paolo Rosa:
"It's a female of Holopyga fervida (Fabricius), it is quite common in France. The male is entirely green or blue. The punctuation on scutellum (almost polished) is typical of this species."
