That is a wasp. Notice how the antennae are not "L" shaped or have a bend in the middle.

Found south in Norway not very far away from the coast, in a rural area with both deciduous and boreal forest.

Collected 03.06.18

About 10-12mm in length. (Can not be 100% sure on the length as she is moving around quite a lot)

Color: Shiny black

She has a very pointy gaster and almost a square head.

It looks to me like some sort of wasp, not an an, but then again I'm not pro. Even if it is ant, I'm guessing its male anyways
