Found this in my kitchen this morning. I recognised it as a wasp of some sort but it has a very long tail/ovipositor which is easily the length of its body including the antennae. Any one know what wasp it is and where it should be released?

An ichneumon I believe. Ephialtes manifestator looks a possibility but there are several similar species so identification could be diffcult.

Difficult to say from this photo. It could be a Sawfly.
