Please help to identify this.
Body length is about 30mm found at Kowloon Bay.
The body shape is similar to Campsomeris sp but I couldn't get it ID. May be I was wrong.
The red body is also similar to Zeugomutilla pycnopyga.
this is Liacos erythrosoma Burmeister, 1854 (Scoliidae)作者:

I think this is a Mutillidae not Scoliidae.作者:

No this is definitely a scolid wasp and the species is certain too. Most of the characters that would distinguish it from a mutilid are not visible on the photo, but the wings with fine wrinkles apically is visible and is a distinguishing character作者:

Sorry, when I say "certain" about the species it is a bit presumptious, nothing is ever certain!... and with scolids that is most probably the case. The family is in taxonomic disarray, and only Betrem (1941. Etudes Systematiques des Scoliidae de Chine...) is available and "accurate" for the Chinese fauna....作者:
