Ichneumon - Enicospilus purgatus

Ichneumon - Enicospilus purgatus
Massanutten Resort, Rockingham County, Virginia, USA
July 28, 2018
When I first saw this I figured it was a crane fly. That is obviously not the case, but rather an ichneumon wasp. Possibly Enicospilus sp. or Ophion sp.
It came to a light at night at the bottom of the mountain.

Moved from Enicospilus.

Enicospilus purgatus…
See reference here.

Great, thanks Ross, and Ken.

Moved from Ophioninae.
