Another Ichneumon

Richard Moore sent me this. It looks like Rhyssa persuasoria to me but there may be others like it.  I am awaiting a second opinion.

Rhyssa persuasoria?

If this is right then it is parasitic on horntail larvae (Uroceras gigasand we certainly have horntails on Raasay.

Incidentally, Richard’s book on the Beetles of Raasay is available at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beetles-Isle-Raasay-Inner-Hebrides/dp/0957183607
