No idea, so I'll plump for the ubiquitous "Ichneumon Wasp". Can anyone confirm and/or narrow it down a bit?
No interactions present.
The long neck and the raised abdomen point towards Gasteruption jaculator but I'm no expert. It isn't an Ichneumon. G jaculator is meant to be the'common' one but as far as I can see, it's only been recorded in thirty 10km squares in the UK. The second 'commonest' is meant to be 'assectator' in twelve 10km squares. I have no idea about 'foveolum', 'minutum' or 'pedmontanum'. I'm still working on getting an ID for mine.
This is all great stuff. I'm just pleased to have got a picture. I followed it around and around some mint plants until it finally settled for a moment. I'm afraid that I tend to use "Ichneumon" for anything with a waist and an ovipositor!
Thanks for all the help
