Photo of Eastern Yellowjacket

A diagnostic feature of the Eastern Yellowjacket (Vespula maculifrons) is the anchor-shaped black mark on the first abdominal band (the segment without a black spot). Queens (above) of this species can be distinguished from males and sterile females by the small black spots on their other abdominal segments.
