Brief Summary
provided by Catalog of Hymenoptera in America North of Mexico
Most species utilize as nesting sites abandoned borings of other insects in twigs, stems or wood, or old mud-dauber nests. A few make burrows in soil for a nesting site; in at least one species a mud turret is constructed over the burrow entrance. Most species prey upon caterpillars, but two of the ground-nesting species use larvae of both Lepidoptera and Coleoptera.

Stenodynerus

Stenodynerus is a rather large genus of potter wasps whose distribution spans the Nearctic, Palearctic, Oriental and Neotropical regions. Most of its species lack a transverse carina on the first metasomal tergum. A pair of medial pits on the anterior face of the pronotum and the expansion of the tegulae put this genus close to genera as Parancistrocerus, Hypancistrocerus and Eustenancistrocerus.
