Hi Proctos,
You seem to have detailed knowledge. Go ahead and post a couple lines at least on your personal page (reachable by clicking on your name) giving us some idea of the source of your expertise and hopefully a personal ID.

New family for the guide!
Richard, thanks for another wasp identification.
If they stand still, and I have the right exposure, the pictures can come out ok.

Great detail
on such a tiny insect. Lens envy bigtime!

Ceraphronidae - female
A typical member of this small family, maybe genus Ceraphron itself. Sometimes spelled Ceraphrontidae. Here in Western Switzerland, most member of this group have only the gaster light orange brown. Mesosoma is dark just like the head.
