I have looked at lots of pictures, but I cant ID this insect. I have seen them in my garden a few times, I feel like it may be a Ichneumon Wasp, but I have been unable to match anything with the dark band/stripe down the middle of the thorax.

These are mating Robber Flies in the family Asilidae. We will attempt to identify the species. Based on images posted to BugGuide, this appears to be Asilus sericeus.
