Description:

I'd have thought the startlingly red legs on this beastie would have been easy to find in Chinery but no - not for me, at least. [No change there, then. :))]
Assisted by RogerR spotting what looks like a very similar beast, I've re-checked Chinery and cribbed an id., though.

These are very tricky -

but like ichneumons, hoverflies, and some of the hymenoptera, I find them so colourful and/or interesting that I keep trying to photograph and identify them as far as possible.

Strongly coloured

The red of the legs in my copy of Chinery doesn't seem anything like as strong as those on my picture. I was scanning through looking for bright red legs and completely missed these fellas. :D
