Dolichovespula sylvestris
(The Tree Wasp)

The face is clear yellow or with only one dot, and the malar space is long. The antennae are yellow at the base and the thorax has pale hairs at the sides with two yellow spots at the rear. The nest is rather a small ball, hung in bushes and covered with thin strong sheets. Not usually found in the far South.
