Isadelphus inimicus

This male ichneumon was found seasching the bark of a Sycamore tree at Hollins Hall, Baildon VC64, on 11th June 2011.

Bill Ely tells me that it seems to be Isadelphus inimicus but it has black mandibles rather than yellow.

Male ichneumons are less easy to identify than females and this could be one of the other Isadelphus species.
