Ichneumon Pupa

Hi again Libby,
We are greatly troubled as we are nearly certain we have identified a very similarly looking suspended pupa in the past, possibly from Australia, but we cannot recall what it is.  We are posting this as unidentified and we hope our readership will assist in the identification.

Update:  Ichneumon Pupa
Thanks to a comment from Cesar Crash, he directed us to this BugGuide posting of an Ichneumon pupa from the genus
Charops.

    This is probably Ichneumonidae, check this on BugGuide:

    But we have a simmilar, but not hanging, that emerged a Braconid on Insetologia:

    I guess this was hiperparasitism.
