got stung in the leg. Never seen a bug like this before.
We believe your parasitic Ichneumon Wasp is a Short Tailed Ichneumon in the genus Ophion, one of the few genera in the family known to sting. The sting is not considered dangerous. According to BugGuide: “Most all Ophion larva are parasites of caterpillars.”
