Zyzzyx is a monospecific genus of sand wasp, containing a brightly colored, medium-sized species, Z. chilensis. It is primarily a predator on flies, but has been observed to consume skippers. "Zyzzyx" is a replacement name proposed in 1937 by V. S. L. Pate for Therapon, originally described by J. Parker in 1929.
