Thanks Bob. Must be Microgastrinae in that case.

No, it's not a Microgastrinae (they have 18 antennal segments (=>16 flagellomeres) and a very small second submarginal cell).
Maybe it's an Alysiinae? Check if the mandibules are exodont or very short (then not meeting).

Hi Bilule. I believe the mandibles are exodont. Nice to learn a new term and see it pictured. Thanks for your help.
