Hice los cambios.
Por favor confirmen que los hice bien.
"sp." es abreviatura de "especie"?

Muchas gracias a todos!

---------GOOGLE TRANSLATION------------
I made the changes.
Please confirm that I was right.
"sp." is abbreviation of "species"?

Thank you very much to all!

You are correct that 1-2 are Ichneumonidae.
I really don't know them well enough to take them any further than that (I am really a chalcid guy).

Oh, cool! Thanks John, I am not really familair with Hymenoptera, so I am happy to get at least the correct family.
John, do you have any IDeas of the other ones? See my suggestion.

Yes, 3-5 are Sphecidae.

You are certainly correct, Stephen, I obviously only focused at the frist 2 pictures. Any IDeas of the other one? Sphecidae??
Pablo, please, make a separate spotting from #3 to #5, thanks!
