Hi Mathias,

I'd rather say, it's an eulophid, due to tarsomer formula 4-4-4, shape of antennae and your wasp fits quite well to the general habitus of an Eulophidae.
Let's see, what the experts say.

Best regards,

Marc

Marc T is absolutely correct for the family. I'm not positive, but I think it is likely a member of the subfamily Euderinae, but I can't tell whether the key characteristic for this group is present or not, viz. just behind the marginal vein there is a bare area except for a distinct row of admarginal setae.

It's a Mestocharis species. Most likely M. bimacularis.
