Hi G√ľnter

Ichneumon bucculentus is not common at all in the UK but I followed your lead and found a number of likely candidates.

I. albiger

I. suspiciosus -

I. extensorius -

I. confusor -

The hind femur and tibia are "highly enlarged" as per this could indicate I. confusor or I. albiger - It is suggested here that males are indistinguishable -

I think I am stuck with Inchneumon sp. :o

Thanks for your help, Gareth
