I think this is Encyrtidae. The antenna appear to be made up mainly of a single segment. Netted, Townsville, Queensland.

Graeme,
Well you are right about the family. BUT If you look closely, you'll see that most of the antenna is the club, and it may be one segmented, but there are 5 or 6 flagellar (transverse) segments between the club and the scape. I don't remember ever seeing a genus quite like this before, so it therefore becomes very interesting.

Thanks Bob, I thought you would find this one interesting. Thanks for the other ID's also. Yes Townsville seems to have no end of encyrtids, they just keep coming. These are all going off to BOLD.
BTW it's great to have the notification feature back again. Thanks to whoever is responsible.
