Interesting antennae on this insect.
Thank you all for your efforts in narrowing it down to the subfamily Phygadeuontinae.
I have just posted a shot of a very similar species from my trip to Cuba .Unfortunately another mystery ,but I suspect the same family.
Just an intersting picture I found:http://www.amentinst.org/GIN/images/YYY....
Similar one, but different leg colors:http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/128...
You are absolutely right Fyn ,I have no idea why I put fly and not wasp .The hour was late and i had too many lagers ,that is my excuse ,and I'm sticking to it .Cheers Fyn.
You are right about the Ichneumon part, Paul, but they are the Ichneumon Wasps (Ichnuemoninae) not flies. This is a member of the subfamily Phygadeuontinae.
This is an Ichneumon fly ,but I cannot help with a species I am afraid.
Lat: 21.17, Long: -86.84
