Ichneumon wasp? - Ophion slossonae

Ichneumon wasp? - Ophion slossonae
Epping, Rockingham County, New Hampshire, USA
August 26, 2009
Size: About 5 cm.
After going through your Ichneumonoidea pages, the closest images I saw were of either Trogus or Enicospilus. This magnificent insect was attracted to my backdoor light, a 60 Watt bulb. The photo was taken around 4:30am. There is a river nearby. This is my first submit for ID. I appreciate your being here to help with IDs. Thanks.
