Ichneumon extensorius brought in for questioning

Observation - Ichneumon extensorius brought in for questioning - UK and Ireland. Description: Re-visited the same log from a few weeks ago - I wanted to get a better record of Ichneumon extensor

Re-visited the same log from a few weeks ago - I wanted to get a better record of Ichneumon extensorius female - no guarantee it was one of the 4 I found previously but a good chance!
.
Brought in for questioning:
.
Admitted to having 35 flagellomere on her possession, being 10.5mm tall, white birth mark on tergite 6 & 7, femur were all black and legs deep red (as opposed to the other suspects with lighter red or mostly red) and black (rear tarsi in particular) - another white birth mark on her thorax too and red hair at femur/coxa joints - she matched the description and had no alibi!
.
Ichneumon extensorius - verified by Geir Orsnes - who updated the Perkins keys with Malcolm Storey. (link below)

And German keys which contain particularly helpful boxes (as long as you can translate): P 179 https://www.zobodat.at/pdf/ENTS_S6_0001-0389.pdf?fbclid=IwAR0l0Ca0gLl7hON1HNYSv_6n-PO7tOzLHq-TIbFYH9xtdMLZSjD0p5osldM
