Ichneumon on log
Sir-
Would this be a male Megarhyussa atrata? I was in a woods in Erie Co., OH

Yes sir, this is a male Giant Ichneumon, Megarhyssa atrata, or possibly another species in the genus. We cannot imagine that they are that rare, though most all of the images we receive are of female Giant Ichenumons.
