The back is yellow and black. A large black plot semicircle at the top of the front. The two plots form a circular line at the top of the back. A pair of wings is brownish black and transparent.

The stomach has the shape of a water droplet, pointed tip, black with yellow and black segments, alternating to form stripes. Linear folds on the sides. The underside of the front is brown and large. The middle section has alternating yellow and black segments that form stripes.

The stomach and back are connected by a long, narrow, downward curved pipe. The front end is very narrow, getting bigger backwards and ending at the stomach slightly smaller. The top is brown, black and yellow. The bottom is brown all over.

The yellow potter wasp builds a pitcher-shaped mud cell in a location protected from the sun, wind and rain to lay eggs. The female collects moist mud around, forming small mud balls 2 mm in diameter, then transported by mouth and forelegs to the pot site.



The female looks for caterpillars among nearby plants, immobilizes and inserts into mud cells. Eggs are creamy yolk for 3 mm. The eggs hatch and the larvae eat the caterpillars. Males and females perch on the grass to rest after sunset.
