Belongs within: Vespidae.

The Eumeninae, potter and mason wasps, are a group of vespid wasps including both solitary and presocial species (Hines et al. 2007). The name 'potter wasp' refers to the pot-shaped nests built by species of Eumenes and related genera; members of this clade (the first branching in the tree below) also have the first segment of the metasoma modified into an elongate petiole (Carpenter & Cumming 1985).

Characters (from Carpenter 1982): Mandible: clypeus ratio 0.78-2.00. Occipital carina forked, with a branch running to the mandibular base and one running toward the hypostoma (either branch may be secondarily lost, usually the hypostomal). Parategula present. Hind coxa with dorsal carina. Claws bifid. Male genitalia with basal ring short, encompassing bases of parameres; volsella with digitus a broad pincerlike lobe, cuspis a reduced scalelike lobe attached mesally to parameres. Larva with labrum as wide as clypeus and narrowed where these join, dorsally bisinuate and ventrally bilobed.
