Eupalamus wesmaeli (male), northern Norway

Have another Ichneumonidae, found today (11.09.2011) at a small birch tree, close to the coast in Bodø, northern Norway. Size from measure is close to 18 mm.

Wing details almost make me unsure of subfamily, it is Ichneumoninae? Have an additional vein on left wing I have'nt see on my other photographed Ichneumoninae, not in any in your gallery either (looked through photos of all species...).
Maybe this doesn't mean anything... Have marked the detail with an arrow (it's not on right wing, have checked!)

Thank you very much for identification, should have kept this one! Regretting to let it go now... Another one not on the Norwegian species list.

I think I should make it clear, that Eupalamus wesmaeli from these photos is a tentative identification from Valemberg! I received this information directly from Valemberg in january 2012, but did not update this thread... (Valemberg wrote that he would like to see the specimen for correct identification)

I have recently checked with literature (Perkins and Tereshkin) and think it's more likely Ctenichneumon edictorius, male (haven't checked this ID with Valemberg, since I've not heard from him since 2014). Unfortunately I've not been able to find any more speciemens identical to the photographed one, have been looking every year (since 2012) at the same location.

No contact with Valemberg for three years!
