Parasitoid wasp

Parasitoid wasp

Observation - Parasitoid wasp - UK and Ireland. Description: A large red wasp with very long curled antennae. Having never identified any of the UK's 6000 parasitoid wasps before I would have a guess at Ophion obscuratus, there is a good page on NHM which influenced my identification.
