This comprehensive resource, developed and maintained by Ian Gauld and David Wahl of the American Entomological Institute, aims to provide up-to-date information about the taxonomy and biology of North American Ichneumonidae, with more detailed treatment and keys to the Nearctic genera/species of a number of [mostly minor] subfamilies, incl. Acaenitinae, Brachycyrtinae, Collyriinae, Lycorininae, Ophioninae, Poemeniinae, Rhyssinae, Stilbopinae, and Xoridinae.

NEW: illustrated key to subfamilies

proper location?
This reference is currently placed at the superfamily level. Would it be more appropriate to move it to Ichneumonidae? It's a great reference but I can't find it under the family level Links tab. Thanks

It's there
On the second page. Links for a taxon include those for higher taxa as well.

I see it there
now but I wasn't clear in my earlier post. The GIN site doesn't cover the superfamily Ichneumonoidea, it's restricted to the family Ichneumonidae. It's a much more useful resource than the British ichneumon guide that now leads off the ichneumon links so it's a loss to bury it on the 2nd page.
