Ichneumon Suspiciosus Is Suspicious

Today I happened to spot an insect I did not remember seeing before. I took some photos of it and was able to identify it as Ichneumon Suspiciosus.

Me: It was all worth it to find out its scientific name has the word “suspicious” in it.
Me: I wonder why it’s called suspicious. Was it acting particularly shady when researchers found it?
Shea: :P
Shea: It was muttering something and, when asked about it, it said, “Nothing!” a little too quickly.
