Dicky Sick Ki Yu (1997-2015) Home of Ichneumonoidea (Taxapad)
[cite:650027]
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)
[cite:369531]

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.

Review of North American species of the genus Lymeon Foerster, 1869 (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Cryptinae)
By Kasparyan, D. R., & Ruíz, C. E
Zoosystematica Rossica, 13(1), 53-79, 2005

Includes our 4 species along with 29 additional neotropical species.

Hosted on the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences website:

Naturedocumentaries.org: Giant Ichneumon (Megarhyssa macrurus) Ovipositing
A really nice description of how Megarhysssa oviposition works. With video.

Biology, early stages and description of a new species of Adelognathus Holmgren (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Adelognathinae)
Detailed biology and life history of a British species of Adelognathinae

Ichneumonidae: Orthopelmatinae and Anomaloninae
Includes diagrams of diagnostic morphological features of the subfamilies and biological information. Published in 1977

Microgastrinae Wasps of the World
from the home page: "This site shares information about the world species of Microgastrinae parasitoid waps (Hymenoptera: Braconidae). There are over 3,000 described species of microgastrines, and an additional 20,000-40,000 remain undescribed, making this group one of the most diverse among parasitoid wasps. Microgastrines can be found in all major terrestrial ecosystems, from as north as 82°30' N in the Canadian Arctic (Alert, Ellesmere Island) to as south as 55° S in South America (Tierra del Fuego, Argentina and Chile) and 50° S in New Zealand (the subantarctic Auckland Islands). They have also been collected up to at least 4,000 meters of altitude (in the Andes and the Himalayas). These wasps parasitize caterpillars of moths and butterflies (Lepidoptera), and thus are one of the most important groups in the biological control of agriculture and forestry pests.

Broad G. (2011) Identification key to the subfamilies of Ichneumonidae (Hymenoptera)
[cite:369494]
A helpful illustrated key designed with the fauna of British Isles in mind but giving good idea of the features used to separate ichneumonoid families and most of the ichneumonid subfamilies in our area, too
