Bethylidae? Yes, subfamily Mesitinae, prob. Heterocoelia

Hi, I found this wasp of about 8 - 9 mm on the floor of my balcony near Bologna, Italy on September 27, 2017. I've been told it might be of the family Bethylidae. Is this correct and is it possible to know something more about it? Thanks in advance for your help!

Yes, according to Diego Nunes Barbosa, it is a bethylid: subfamily Mesitinae, probably the genus Heterocoelia.
