Can anyone suggest a family for this wasp? Netted, Townsville, Queensland.

In the old days, this would be called family Scelionidae, subfamily Teleasinae. Now that the scelionids have been sunk under Platygastridae, I'm not sure in what subfamily these are now placed.

Thanks Bob. I think I'll file it under your first suggestion, when it gets to BOLD it may well stay there anyway.

Nope got that wrong. Just checked on BOLD and it looks like the Scelionidae are now in Scelioninae under Platygastridae.

Graeme,
I just checked at Wikipedia (although I don't know if that is any more authorative than BOLD), and there the 3 subfamilies of Scelionidae (Scelioninae, Teleasinae and Telenominae) were simply transferred unchanged under Platygastridae.
