Sorry about that. Not used to site.
Thanks for the I D. Think you are correct. Looks just like a Greater Horntail Wasp.
Could someone please help me indentify this strange insect i found in my indoor fish tank this evening, I have never seen anything like it before.
A Greater Horntail Wasp, quite harmless I believe. The projection from the tip of the abdomen is for egg laying and is not a sting.
It gets a bad press actually its not really a Wasp !! The Giant Woodwasp, Banded Horntail, or Greater Horntail (Urocerus gigas) is a species of Sawfly
