Moved from Proctotrupids.
Thanks Proctos. Now we have a male Proctotrupes caudatus picture to go along with the females.

Proctotrupes caudatus Say, 18
Proctotrupes caudatus Say, 1824 male



Moved from parasitic Apocrita.

Not braconid or ichneumon, likely not parasitica. I would move this back to the Hymenoptera (order) category for now. Someone should be able to ID eventually.
