Cool wasp -- would love any guidance on this one.
Left one of the sessions a bit early to run over to this pond. Really cool wetland spot!
Ichneumon Wasps > 懸繭姬蜂 Charops sp.
Striking orange and black, quite large, here attempting to get into the house! Pimpla?
Several moths and other insects wee observed on an outside wall near a light near a back door to the motel I was staying in.
The Ichneumonoidea are insects classified in the hymenopteran suborder Apocrita. The superfamily is made up of the ichneumon wasps (sometimes inaccurately called "ichneumon flies"); family Ichneumonidae and the braconids (family Braconidae). Like other parasitic wasps, they were long placed in the "Parasitica", variously considered as an infraorder or an unranked clade, but actually not a monophyletic group.
