Easy 55mm long from head to white tip of the ovipositor. Greyish colour, found hovering around a - look like - Sirex Woodwasp.
Sorry I missed the message Chiquita. Thanks John.
This is in the Gasteruptiidae - probably genus Gasteruption.
Thanks YukoChartraw and emanuelgoyco, very difficult to ID with this silhouette pic :(
Should I change it to Giant Ichneumon Wasps or keep it as it is, Argy Bee? Intriguing with the colour grey and white tips. I saw it again today, hope I can get some better pics.
Excellent photo Chicquita. The gasteruptiids here are small - like big mosquitoes.
Do we have Giant Ichneumon Wasps in Australia?
