  1. David Francis  Possibly Westwoodia ruficeps, an Ichneumon wasp that parasitises Sawfly larvae ("Spitfires")

  2. David Francis  I think this is an ichneumon wasp that is an excellent mimic of a braconid wasp.

  3. David Francis  We now are back to thinking this is a Braconid wasp, probably Callibracon sp. See discussion at https://natureshare.org.au/observations/58ccb7afed2a89563f0000c4
