I would rather say Ichneumonoidea.

Hi, Ichneumonidae is correct and the big ocelli as well as the enlarged hind tarsi remind me of a species I recently met for the first time: Hybrizon buccatus, Hybrizontinae - an ant parasitoid. Could be another species of the subfamily or a colour variant...
Greetings, Eric

I also thought so, or Braconidae, but I wasn’t sure, and I also thought about Mycetophilidae. Thank you very much Eric for the determination even though they are not Diptera
