Hi Colin, You might like to

Hi Colin,

You might like to add the ID Ichneumonidae or slightly more specific again would be Ichneumoninae. Based on recently looking at obs. of very similar insects on the site.

Apparently it is extremely difficult to bring these to species due to similarities in the appearance of various species.

Thats even better than my

Thats even better than my suggestion Stephen and probably accurate- I had seen experienced users adding IDs of Ichneumoninae in the past and thought it might be good for it.
