Ichneumon Wasp

March 13, 2017

An Ichneumon Wasp was spotted at Hidden Pond, Meadowood Recreation Area, Fairfax County, Virginia USA.

The genus/species is unknown.

Ichneumonids are notoriously hard to identify: aside from the sheer number of species, there are numerous cases of distant relatives that appear almost identical. Any identification based solely on comparing images should be treated as suspect unless an expert has said there are no lookalikes for the species or group in question.
