Anyone know which insect this is?
It was crawling up a wall in my house (until last night).
Thanks in advance for any help.

I have since found out it's a Ichneumon wasp (female).

Ichneumonidae; yeah you got it. They have a characteristic horse head in the wing structure, which makes them easy to identify.

See this one http://bugguide.net/node/view/234419
