Description:

Apologies for a fairly mutilated specimen. It was probably trodden on by someone but I think the essentials are visible. It's about 30mm from front of the head to back of the ovipositor. The lack of yellow bands suggest it's not the Horntail (Urocerus gigas) but probably a female of another Sirex species. Any ideas?
