Resting Wasp by EarthHart
EarthHart

Looking around at the autumnal colour, I noticed this wasp having a rest.

On who's leaves is it resting?
Common, and Latin name, if you can please.

      Thanks for the favour, m'deer but you're wrong. It's in its own Family & Genus, with around some 200 species

      I've been trying to come up with some more clues, but it's hard not to give the game away. All I will say, is that it has various common names, one of which belongs to another tree that has culinary uses.

      i also have the Prunus .... Prunus Spinosa.... in mind..... rather than the Asimina.... as Prunus is a common plant in whole Europe i just don't know if the Prunus Spinosa gets yellow leaves.....

      chestnut? Aesculus? there is the other, eatable one, one, the castanea sative, which grows in the south part of Switzerland.... that's why you told me to not look for the latin names ?

      No roast chestnuts for you, m'deer
      Take a close look at the leaves again as there's something else growing there that may help

      ahh.... i didn't know that. but now i need to tell you.... first of all.... because of the shape of the leaves and the quess of the rather leathery leaves..... i thought of the bay tree... but in the same moment, i put the thought away because it is green through all year....... so.... i think..... there is the character in the species i unconsciously felt...... :-))))))) thank you so much for your help !!!! i Just learnt something i love to learn
