Goryphus basilaris, from here.

Belongs within: Ichneumonidae.
Contains: Gotra.

The Cryptini are a group of mostly medium-sized or large ichneumon wasps with a single bulla in forewing vein 2m-cu and without complete propodeal areolation. They have been divided between numerous subtribes but these are poorly defined and of questionable validity (Gauld 1984).
