Another online access option at BHL
The link =v= provided above presents a HTML version of Carlson's chapter on family Ichneumonidae from the monumental catalog of Krombein et al(1). Besides presenting the text of Carlson's chapter, the DiscoverLife version includes links to the DiscoverLife web site entries for many species. Such links could potentially be very promising...though presently it seems that there's not much substantial additional content therein — beyond displaying a world map showing a sampling of collection records, and perhaps also links to associated BOLD pages (which are often relatively empty placeholders).

For those who prefer reading from old-fashioned quality type-set books...a straight photo-copy facsimile of Carlson's chapter from the actual print book can also be freely-accessed via the Biodiversity Heritage Library web site, beginning here on pg. 315 of the BHL online offering of Krombein et al(1).

Both presentation can be linked to by specific page, if one wishes to make such a reference in a BugGuide comment (or elsewhere).
