Body 2 mm. Is it possible to tell genus and spieces of this female?

There are only 12 genera in Megaspilidae, but the two most common are Dendrocerus and Conostigmus. Separating these two depends upon several characters: the shape of the forewing stigma (full half circle vs truncate), the sutures (notauli) on the dorsum of the mesothorax (forming a sharp angle anteriorly vs rounded), and the arrangement of the ocelli (acute or obtuse triangle). Regretfully, I cannot see any of these characters in enough detail in your images.
