Can anyone suggest a family for this wasp? Encyrtidae? Light trap, Townsville, Queensland.

This is a tough one. It definitely is not an encyrtid. I think it is likely a Eurytomidae, but it could also be a Pteromalidae.

Thanks Bob. Again as with the other one, I'll flag it after BOLD does it's job and let you know. Short marginal vein, thorax sculptured, 5 tarsi, 5 funicle segments.
I'll go with Pteromalidae.
