Certainly an Ichneumon Wasp

Certainly an Ichneumon Wasp but I was contemplating Haemorrhoicus crassigena but they are very tricky to tie down to species level.

Problem family

Yep, a very tricky family indeed to sort out. Don't think more than a handful can be reliably identified to species level from photographs.
