collected on sidewalk near some grass in Langley BC Canada

found late September 20-25 (sorry its been a while)

habitat: grass or forested area

11mm long

dark red black in color

I'm not sure, very generic, no spike or large protrusions, smooth, thorax isn't as exaggerated as many other species

caught very late and so only started laying niantics about 3 weeks ago

i have no idea what the nest looked like i'm guessing just a hole near the sidewalk

i did not witness the nuptial flight however it was over by the time i caught her

 

i couldn't figure out the file attachment: ill link imgur instead

https://imgur.com/a/Vcbg0G4

 

if more images are need i can try harass her again for more

 

thanks guys I'm new to all this so if someone could link me a guide for that species

On Imgur, it will give an option for various links to copy. Copy the one that says BBCode and paste it into the reply and it should auto-embed on here :D.
