Ichneumonid wasp

happy tohelp, you find some interesting things; if you still have it the cocoon above will produce a wasp in due course.

Great pics of an ichneumonid wasp ovipositing on your blog. Possibly Ephialtes manifestator, although there are some similar ones.

To David

Thanks for your kind comments, David, and for another possible id. I'll update my video post to include it. My blog wouldn't be half as exciting to write without your ids. Thank you!
