Clistopyga incitator (Fabricius)

After visiting Jerrison Wood in Esholt VC64, I found this insect flying around inside my car.

Bill Ely (YNU Parasitica Recorder) and Mark Shaw identified it for me as Clistopyga incitator, a parasitoid of spider nests - Segestria etc.

Bill tells me that this Pimpline ichneumon is a new record for grid square SE14.
