excellent resource, although the name of the site is a misnomer: actually, it's a set of several separate projects designed to cover eventually all the living organisms.

Genera Ichneumonorum Nearcticae (2014)

This comprehensive resource, developed and maintained by Ian Gauld and David Wahl of the American Entomological Institute, aims to provide up-to-date information about the taxonomy and biology of North American Ichneumonidae, with more detailed treatment and keys to the Nearctic genera/species of a number of [mostly minor] subfamilies, incl. Acaenitinae, Brachycyrtinae, Collyriinae, Lycorininae, Ophioninae, Poemeniinae, Rhyssinae, Stilbopinae, and Xoridinae.

Includes our 4 species along with 29 additional neotropical species.

The Ecology of Commanster: Therion circumflexum (Linnaeus 1758) (Family Ichneumonidae)
Web archive of observational data of Therion circumflexum in Commanster, Luxembourg. Some caution may be warranted regarding applying data to our area due to differences in climate.

Dinotrema, Foerster, 1863
Based on Peris-Felipo, Frаncisco Jаvier & Belokobylskij, Sergey А., 2018, Revision of the New World species of the genus Dinotrema (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Alysiinae), Zootaxa 4382 (1), pp. 1-55
The key is included in the "treatment" and there are links to the figures accompanying each couple on Zenodo.

The figures are also available directly from Zenodo at Giant Ichneumon (Megarhyssa macrurus) Ovipositing
A really nice description of how Megarhysssa oviposition works. With video.

A taxonomic review of the genus Spathius Nees (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) in North America and comments on the biological control
Marsh, Paul M. and John S. Strazanac. “A taxonomic review of the genus Spathius Nees (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) in North America and comments on the biological control of the emerald ash borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae).” Journal of Hymenoptera Research 18 (2009): 80-112.

Abstract.—A review of the braconid genus Spathius in North America and comments on several
species in the biological control of the Emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fair., are presented.
Separate keys to females and males, descriptions, distributions, and biologies are given for the 19
species occurring in North America. One new species, Spathius leiopleuron Marsh and Strazanac,
