Wonderful diagrams of morphological parts and areas of Ichneumoninae as a whole. There could be more diagrams tailored to parts of the key in which distinctions are made using variations in the shape, etc. of a given character. The translation to English is a bit difficult in places. I found that I needed to double-check names of tribes in the key with Dicky Sick Ki Yu's names index in order to avoid using junior synonyms. Nonetheless, I found this key useful for IDing tribes of Ichneumoninae.
