Ichneumon

Hello, would you be able to clarify whether this specimen had any markings at all on it's back? It is hard to tell with the busy Jurassic Park background! (Although that is in someways quite suitable..)

I am thinking it could be Ichneumon sarcitorius.

Sorry about the background

Sorry about the background lol.

I have zoomed in closely to the first image without the jurassic park background and it doesn't seem to possess any yellow banding on the abdomen, it looks plain black to me, so perhaps it is a similar species to sarcitorius?
