Nope, eupelmids have very long marginal veins. This is an encyrtid (male, unfortunately), a group characterized by (among other things) short marginal veins.

Thanks Bob. I've finally realised what the marginal vein is. I've been calling it as all the way back to the body. Adding the submarginal vein as the marginal vein. So in this case I can see the marginal vein is very short.
