hello Bilule,

For me it is a "Torymus"....I'm not an expert, but you can see images of the Family Toryminae at the "Universal Chalcidoidea Database" on :

Hello Billule,

Are you really shure for the flower (Santolina sp) for the 2nd picture ?
it looks also Tanacetum vulgare (Tanaisie )
(http://popgen.unimaas.nl/~jlindsey/comm ... ulgare.jpg)

if the 2nd one is oviposting on Tanacetum vulgare (Tanaisie )
Maybe it is "Torymus tanaceticola " ,
Plant associates :Tanacetum sp.,
Primary hosts:Rhopalomyia tanaceticola (Cecidomyiidae)
(ref : http://www.nhm.ac.uk/jdsml/research-cur ... %2edsml%3f )
and also 2 (Chalcidoid family: Eulophidae)

if the 2nd one is oviposting on Santolina sp
there is only Dermatopelte budensis (Chalcidoid family: Eulophidae) , associated with this plant
(ref : http://www.nhm.ac.uk/jdsml/research-cur ... %2edsml%3f )

Thanks Rapha 1.
It's the same specimen on both photos, and the plant is also the same and I'm sure it is Santolina sp.
I'm not convinced by Eulophidae: they seem to be smaller, and their anntennas to be less segmented...
But I'm totally inexperienced. So...

No other opinion?
Can it be tranfered on the new section "Chalcidoidea"?
Thanks for your attention.
