are small to large (fore wing 2.2 21 mm long). Clypeus usually wide and flat and separated from face by weak groove, the apex widely truncate; mandible usually long and slender, with lower tooth (when present) usually much reduced; ventroposterior corner of propleuron without strongly produced lobe; sternaulus of mesopleuron usually short or absent, very rarely reaching mesocoxa; postpectal carina incomplete; propodeal carinae usually complete; fore wing with areolet pentagonal or subtriangular, almost always closed; hind wing with vein M + Cu almost always straight; metasomal segment 1 slender anteriorly, widened posteriorly, without glymma, and with spiracle near apex; tergum 2 usually with deep gastrocoeli; metasoma dorsoventrally depressed; ovipositor short, without dorsal subapical notch and with sheath rigid.
They are endoparasitoids of Lepidoptera; oviposition is into larvae (koinobionts) or pupae (idiobionts); emergence is always from the pupa. Females search on foot for hosts in shrubs and leaf litter. Many species are sexually dichromatic.

Hi Didier,
Great job! ... This is a great idea to show us this ichneumon making an effort to continue the species! ... It's a great way to document this behavior. This picture is consistent with the objective of TN "Learning about nature through photography" ... Excellent! ... I love it!
