    Default Scary looking thing

    Does anyone know what it may be? found it flying around the kitchen last night and the gf was bitten by something similar I was told a few weeks ago and it went really nasty

    About the size of a daddy longlegs and flew randomly just like one but the head similar to a wasp

    It's a type of ichneumon wasp. give me a few minutes and i'll look through my books.

    ok i reckon it's a yellow ophion.

    Edit: It's a Netelia Testacea.
