Campopleginae sp - ichneumonidae
Going through my records for July last year, I found some images of an 'anon' ichneumon wasp which I put on the UK Bees Wasps Ants Group on Facebook. Jaswinder Boparai ID'd this as a male Campopleginae sp and this was confirmed by Gavin Broad.
EDIT: I have now found some records, but again not many, for Campoplex sp on NBN. This shows none in Wales, although Aderyn shows one record on Gower in 1925 for Campoplex faunus.
I can find no records of this on Aderyn, and there are very few on the NBN Gateway. Maybe this is because there are other specifically named records that are not picked up with a generic search.
Looking further back I found images for two separate days in July 2015 of female Campopleginae sp, again confirmed by Jaswinder so I shall be looking out for one in July this year.
