This is a male probably belonging to either the Pteromalidae or Eupelmidae, although I cannot rule out Torymidae.

Thanks Bob. I'll call it a wasp then. BTW I'm back sending insects over to BOLD. They've given me free reign, so can send anything. They've sent me some microplates which are used for micro insects. The barcode of this wasp will line up with it's relatives, so I will get a family eventually.
Cheers, Graeme
