Scolobates auriculatus female, northern Norway 01.08.2015

Think subfamily is Ctenopelmatinae, and maybe it's possible to identify to species level? Looks like Scolobates auriculatus, but I don't know if there are similar species...
Size close to 8 mm (antenna is much longer than body, tarsal claws pectinate).

Found in Bodø, northern Norway (at 67 degrees north). Date: 01.08.2015.

I've asked Alexey Reshchikov (specialist on Ctenopelmatinae) about this one, it is a Scolobates sp., probably auriculatus.

This one is (not only probably) Scolobates auriculatus. You can find a key to all of the Nordic/northwestern European species (except nigerrimus) in:
Schmiedeknecht, O. 1912. Opuscula Ichneumonologica. Vt. Band. (Fasc. XXX-XXXII.) Tryphoninae. Blankenburg in Thuringen. pp. 2323-2562 (downloadable as pdf).
Scolobates nigerrimus: Ulbricht, A. 1922. Neue deutsche Ichneumoniden. Konowia. 1:181-184 (downloadable as pdf).
Scolobates longicornis is redefined by Lee et al 2006 from Korea. This species is less black and more yellow/red, and has broader hind tarsi.
Sothern European Scolobates (nigripennis and marshalli) not considered.

Thanks for checking this one, Gunnar. I haven't spent much time on Ctenopelmatinae.
