  1. Genus Therion has similar species too. Posted one month ago
    1. Interesting - the thorax looks very much the same, but the abdomen is a totally different shape, round rather than flattened (and is striped - the wings hide it in this view) - sexual dimorphism? The one in my photo does appear to be male - no visible ovipositor, at least. Posted one month ago
      1. Yeah, that was the only mismatching part in my search too. Tricky one. Posted one month ago
        1. Tough one, but I agree with Ichneumon sp. It looks so similar to this one:
