Nice article, and I think it was not the last undescribed species from Central or Western Europe. The small wasps are really bad known.

"As a solitary wasp, Mesoleptus hibernica will not sting humans and prefers to attack fellow flying creatures such as butterflies."

Mesoleptus = Ichneumonidae=solitary wasp????????

yes it must be. its not social so its solitary. propably just the popular-scientific description was a bit misleading.
