This is the only angle I have. I suspect this'll be a hard one to ID ...

As this is the only angle I have I can't tell for sure the colour, but it looks redish brown doesn't it. I'll try to calculate the size when I get back home.

The only thing I can say about the size is that it is larger than 5 mm. I don't think I got close anough for a 1:1 photo ...

Wow, thank you very much to you and Valemberg. Is the name Joël Valemberg and is he from Belgium?

Valemberg is French (Lille), author of many general work on Ichneumons especially into systematic and biology, morphology published into out of the ordinary at the entomological Society of N of France!

Sexagenerian like me, we have worked together for 40 years but he is a more expert than me for Ichneumoninae, then I ask him to confirm my identifications or to fill the hesitations!
