Ichneumon or not Ichneumon? That is the question.
No Ichneumon with black/dark gaster fits with Hilpert. Even if postpetiolus fits with Ichneumon it is may be another gender?
No Ichneumon with that elongate gastrocoeli + thyridiae I think, or may be some males?
No match with Coelichneumon in Perkins.
Any Cratichneumon with this striate postpetiolus?
Now I think it must be Exephanes. If Exephanes; venustus is the closest match in Hinz & Horstmann 2000
Only occupator known from Norway, venustus known from Denmark, Finland (Taxapad) and Sweden (Swedish name database).
It is 11,1 mm long, sweepnetted in Meldal, Trøndelag, Norway, 26/8-2015.
Flagellum with 38 segments, black on both sides. Tyloidae on segments 6 - 16, narrow oval, almost as long as segment lenght.
