Campsomeriella thoracica (Fabricius, 1787). Two males

Campsomeriella thoracica is a wasp with a length of 16-19 mm in the family Scoliidae. The female is very different from the male. It is black with reddish pubescence on head and thorax.
It is found in the Mediterranean area and the western Asia. The orange colour is missing from the males in the western populations.
In Cyprus it is common in costal areas.
