Hi, this is a wasp I found on Centaurea sadleriana in Miskolc, Hungary (end of August). Maybe Trichogrammatidae?

Hi, I found this old photo and tried to determine it using a key to Hungarian Eulophidae. I found Sigmophora brevicornis (Panzer 1804) (=Tetrastichus brevicornis) that (I think) perfectly matches to this specimen. Only the end of thorax should be darker. What do you think?

I'm not convinced it is Sigmophora brevicornis. I've compared it with a specimen I have and it looks very different.

First of all can you say for certain it is a Sigmophora? Does it have the characteristic sharp transverse carinae on the vertex (easily seen in side view)? If it does, can you check how many rows of setae there are on each side of the mid lobe of the mesoscutum and whether these appear dark, or light in colour?
