    Re: Please help ID this fly

    Hello, I'm not an expert, so please feel free to look this name up somewhere else to check, and I'm sure experts on this site can check, but saw one similar earlier in the year & looked it up in the Collins Complete British Wildlife (Paul Sterry) book... I think this is a Rhyssa persuasoria. Body length approx 35mm?? (not sure of scale in photo). Think close to gall wasp/sawfly family. Your photo is very well-caught!
