The wing venations seem to me to match up well with Ophioninae in the key found here. See additional photos and explanations.

Moved from Enicospilus.

Ichneumonidae: Ophioninae: Enicospilus sp.
This is an ichneumonid in the genus Enicospilus. They are nocturnal, as you can tell from the lack of pigmentation and the huge ocelli. Those "flecks" in the forewing are characteristic of this genus, even though not all Enicospilus have them. Give me a while, and I may be able to ID the species.
