Gelis? - female

Gelis? - Female
Atco, Camden County, New Jersey, USA
December 22, 2011
Size: 5mm?
Not great image... Found on barn siding.
I beleive it's Gelis. Correct me if I'm wrong...

Dr. Michael Sharkey suspects that this is a new genus of Doryctinae and would like to be able to examine a specimen.

Moved from Gelis.

Sorry, but I didn't catch it (I never catch or rear...) and that was a first and only time I saw this wasp...
Please say sorry to Dr. Sharkey... Thank you for your help both!

Perhaps the species has already found its way into an insect collection of a New Jersey or Pennsylvania university.

I don't know what this is, but the structure of the petiole might exclude Gelis.

Oh, I see...
So... still within Ichneumon or possible other wasps?
Should I move to Family level for now?
