Ichneumonidae sp. (Ichneumon Wasp sp.)


There are quite a few large orange Ichneumon wasp species in The Netherlands and they are very difficult to tell apart. For instance, there are several species within the genus Ophion and the genus Netelia.
This may well be an Ophion species, but probably not Ophion luteus, which is usually only seen in July, August and September (my photo was taken in May).
