Looks 'sorta like a dragonfly, but I've never seen one with those long friggin gizmos hanging out of it's ass.
This thing was buzzing around the store yesterday.
He was taken down with a lucky shot from a flyswatter, and then sprayed with brake-kleen for good measure.
YES, that is a fullsize paper towel he is spread across.

This family of parasitic wasps contains an estimated 60,000 species which are classified into 36 subfamilies.

Ichneumoninae is the second largest subfamily of the family Ichneumonidae. All individuals of this subfamily are internal parasites of the order Lepidoptera. Although females oviposit one egg into either larvae or pupae, the offspring always emerge from the pupa (Burks, 1979). Ichneumoninae are endoparasitic idiobionts. An idiobiont has a wide range of hosts and it eats, kills, or paralyzes the host immediately after oviposition therefore resulting in no continuation of development. An endoparasite feeds internally on its host whereas an ectoparasite feeds externally (Gaasch,1998). Female Ichneumoninae look for hosts on the ground and have short ovipositors, possibly as a result of their host usually being a naked larvae (Goulet, 1993). Adults feed on honey dew of aphids and on certain plant foliage. They have a general dislike of intense amounts of heat and sunlight and therefore are not usually found during the middle of the day (Heinrich, 1977).

More information than I am sure you were looking for! I would say the common name is Black-footed Longtail.

BEAT to the PUNCH!@#

I thought I was the only insect guy around here!

So it paralyzes you, implants its egg, the egg
hatches, and the larva eats you from the inside
before bursting out...Hrmm, where have I heard
of this before?

Drag out your camera, and post pics.

AND, bugs aren't mean... they are just missunderstood.

Misunderstood alright. They don't bite, infest food, or chew up the place but they sure are ugly. Territorial too, they'll jump straight at you.. 4 feet up and out easy.
