Ophionine

I caught this at light yesterday in south Oxfordshire, England. Is it a Netalia or an Ophion - or one of the other genera? :)

None of both ;) its a Enicospilus spec., also an Ophioninae. U can see this distinctive Chitin-plate-thingie in the middle of the wing only in this genus.

Thanks Eckart :)

I had noticed the triangle in the wing membrane so I guessed it wasn't Netalia but I think I saw similar inclusions in Ophion spp. But I am happy - a new genus for me! :D

Thanks again

Enicospilus undulatus attention does not have a sclerite!
If only one sclerite, Enicospilus repentinus!
