Is this a male braconid wasp? Round head and thorax appear to fit, but I have never seen one of this size.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,

MikeP attached the following image:

Hi, date and location could be useful...
But nevertheless I think it's a female Alomya debellator (Ichneumonidae - Ichneumoninae).

Thank you very much Eric!

Your identification is clearly correct.

The date is 4/13/24 and the location is Pötzleinsdorf near Vienna, Austria.

This year many insects are active one or even to two months early.

Yes Mike, the same here, they are much too early - and this bodes nothing good...

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
