Thread subject: :: Ichneumonidae - Eutanyacra species?

Posted by Buba on 23-04-2022 11:03

Who can help identifying this wasp? Found in may garden in Liechtenstein.

I assume it could be an eutanyacra species due to the yellow - black antennae and the black-orange legs and further characteristics.

But if so, which one species could it be ? Unfortunately, I have no picture of the abdomen.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi, unfortunately we cannot see the abdomen, but Eutanyacra could be correct (more than 15 antennal segments should be Ichneumonidae).
I guess it may be a female of E. crispatoria.

Thank you Eric.

I have also checked this image from the Czech BioLib before but I was not entirely convinced. Yet, given that the abdomen of the wasp on my picture is not sufficiently visible I agree that there is at least a high likelihood that this may be a female of E. crispatoria.
