Rhyssa? - Rhyssa lineolata

This wasp looks to me like it could be from the genus Rhyssa. Are there any other groups that look similar? I know Ichneumon Wasps are often very difficult to identify, but I'd appreciate knowing as much as possible about what this one could be. Thank you!

Moved from Ichneumon Wasps.

Rhyssa lineolata…
Hosts are horntails in the genera Sirex and Urocerus.

See reference here.

Thank you very much for the ID!
