Moved
After finding agreement with the description of Conocalama canadensis in Heinrich's treatise on the Ichneumoninae of northeastern North America, I sent an inquiry to Dr. David Wahl of the American Entomological Institute to see whether the photo actually agrees with specimens of the species. He has confirmed the agreement, and I thank him for that, because it is really nice to now have this superb photo identified to species.

Moved from Ichneumoninae.
