Dear Doesn’t matter,
We quickly identified your parasitic Ichneumon Wasp as
Ichneumon stramentor thanks to a photo posted on Parasitica (scroll down), and we confirmed that identification on Paws for Wildlife where we learned:  “Larva – parasitise the Large Yellow Underwing and Setaceous Hebrew Character caterpillars (possibly others).”
