Not an ichneumonid but a chalcidoid. Maybe Pteromalidae...?

May be a better guess is Torymidae, but I hope there is someone who is better conversed with this group.

Lovely photo! Smile

Well, I have done a (little) bit of work with chalcids and it certainly looks like a Torymus sp. Grin but they're a horrendously difficult genus to key out... I have the key and probably tried it twice before giving up! Angry

Many of the torymids are parasitoids of galls - eg. T.nitens/auratus, which attacks the "Marble Gall" (Andricus kollari) found on Oaks.

Certainly Torymidae and Chris is most probably right .Contact John Noyes at the Natural History Museum, London. http://www.nhm.ac.uk//research-curation/staff-directory/entomology/cv-3601.html for an expert confirmation He will want permission to use your superb photograph if he can arrive at an id. Who wouldn't? Specimen next time I hope. Another possibility is Csaba Thuroczy in Korstag Hungary:- Thur?czy Csaba [thuroczy.cs@freemail.hu]

Just an update- initial view of John Noyes is that it is a Monodontomerus sp. Just looked at some pics of Monodontomerus dentipes and it does look very similar.
May get further ID info shortly
