I have tried to ID this insect which I sighted late May, I have only come up with it being maybe a Sawfly or Ichneumon.

Help with species ID will be appreciated.

Thank you very much Andy!

The name certainly fits the insect with it's long neck and flathead! It was found in a wooded area of a common by a small pool.
