Ichneumon Wasp

Pimpla marginella


This wasp has blue/gray eyes, red thorax and legs, a white and black striped abdomen, and iridescent wings.


Seen spending its time on the ground mostly in a suburban back yard.


According to Bugguide, the range for this species is Southern Florida, but Orlando is in Central Florida and there are also photos on there of them in Jacksonville. I am guessing it is just not an often photographed species and the range isn't very accurate.
