Australian Paper Wasp

Ropalidia revolutionalis is a small to medium sized, dark
reddish-brown wasp, very common from south-eastern to
northern Queensland. It builds very distinctive nests that are
frequently found on garden shrubs or fences. Each comb
consists of a vertical strip two cells wide, attached by a
peduncle at the upper end. Large colonies of this species may
be made up of a row of several combs.
Taken in my BBQ area building there nest on a hook I put up to hang lights on. Logan City QLD, Australia.
