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

This is a scelionid male. The dorsal/ventral compression of the metasoma (abdomen) is typical for a lot of scelionid species, and the venation looks like a typical Scelioninae. The antenna (lack of a discrete club, visibly long hairs) marks it as a male.
