<i>Philanthus gibbosus</i>

Philanthus gibbosus, which is commonly referred to as a beewolf due to its predation practices, is a species of bee-hunting wasp and is the most common and widespread member of the genus in North America. P. gibbosus is of the order Hymenoptera and the genus Philanthus. It is native to the Midwestern United States and the western Appalachians.

T. gibbosus is a species of boxfish native to the Indo-West Pacific, but it has been established in the Mediterranean Sea via Lessepsian migration. It is mainly found at depths of 37–110 m (121–361 ft) on slopes or over muddy bottoms, but can sometimes be seen near shallow seagrass beds. Like other boxfish species, its flesh is poisonous. It feeds on a wide variety of invertebrates and algae.
