Ichneumonidae?

Postby Niek van Wijk on 28 Sep 2008, 12:19

Dear forum,

I took these pictures today in my garden in Putte, The Netherlands (South, near the Belgian border). Length ~15 mm.
Is Ichneumonidae correct and is further identification possible with these pictures?

Best regards, Niek

This looks very like Pimpla rufipes (Miller 1759) synoyms hypochondriaca, instigator] a very common Autumn species.Robert

Dear Colin and Robert,

Thank you for your reactions. I looked at various pictures of both species on the internet but as a layman I find it very difficult to decide which one it is, especially since I do not trust all determinations I find there. I tend to choose Pimpla rufipes but I hope someone can confirm this.

Best regards, Niek

Hi

This specimen u photographed belongs to subfamily Pimplinae. Amblyteles is a totally different subfamily and clearly not your specimen, although it also has reddish legs. Wether its a Pimpla spec. i dont know and in my opinion its not quite possible to ID the species by photo. But Pimplinae should be certain.

Cheers

Dear Eckart,

My reaction is a little late but for some reason I missed your question.
Of course you may use my pictures, those on the forum now and in the future.

Best regards,
Niek
