Large red wasp with black wings and ovipositor.


found on raspberry bushes next to a stream.


I looked at Braconid wasps but somewhere got the impression they were all small. This one was pretty large.

Thanks Vo Anh Tuan. You would think there might be a lot of these wasps in this area as the whole forest was devastated by beetles a number of years ago and there are still dead trees everywhere.
