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.

[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.

a wonderful resource cited on many BG pages over the years (somehow never made it into the ref section, though)

Wasps of Illinois
Angella Moorehouse has created a color guide to some of the Hymenoptera that can be found in Illinois. Can be downloaded free from The Field Museum.
