Ichneumonid wasp

Ichneumonid wasp
Ithaca, NY, Tompkins County, New York, USA
August 27, 2019
Wasp was grooming its head and abdomen for a long time in shadowy gap in leaves. I haven't been able to find photos matching this species in width and spacing of black and yellow abdominal bands. Nearby I've seen similar ichneumonids with broad black tip to abdomen, maybe I. annulatorius. But I thought this might be different. Thanks for any thoughts.
